Turquois and Rhinestones

Two of my favorite things.
For those of you that don’t know me (Suzanne) - I wear Turquoise – a LoT
And Rhinestones- well – lets just say I like the old costume jewelry kind- 
always keeping an eye out for a GreAt Steal on those!!!! 

So when my photographer friend Shelli took this photo of 
Turquoise Dr. and Rhinestone Dr. and posted on facebook, I knew I had to have it!

So- sweet Shelli at (www.photographibyshelli.com) let me order a pic of the road signs. 
I was tickled! (She has lots more awesome pictures if you’re interested in prints. 
She was a vendor in our 2009 Barn Sale, and she does awesome work.)

Here’s how I ended up with the beautiful picture above.

First things first- Buy a cheap frame – mine came from Walmart

Check out the assortment of stones on hand….. 
Wound up using a large greenish turquoise cross to highlight 
the sign color along with a few chipped stones as well. 

Then went digging through stickers and scrapbook stones
since I couldn’t part with any of my vintage costume rhinestone brooches. 

… Break out the always handy Dazzle Tac
( I’m sure E6000 would work just as well). 

So I picked matching corners for each and glued/stuck on. 

Viola- It hangs proudly on my bathroom wall-
with some turquoise hanging around pretty close to it! 

Just a little something I made….. 

Take a minute and scroll through Shelli’s fun pictures on Facebook, or check out her website to see her entire gallery of creative photography.
