Share Your Cup #209
You will see my original plan on this post. I was not able to get the existing tile from the frame so I just purchased another frame.
I removed the print and glass from this one. I painted the back board with Blue Velvet acrylic paint so that the tiny gap between the tile and frame would not show. I also painted the edge of the tile with the same paint. I then dry brushed the same paint onto the frame to create a distressed look.
I am happy with how it turned out and it is hanging in my kitchen.
Yesterday, I found salad plates and cups to match. I was very happy. They will allow me to create tablescapes with more pieces. They work very well with my Myott The Hunter salad plates which are just a bit smaller. The white plate with scallop edge is IKEA.
Here is a few flower shots taken after completing my photo shoot for the 2017 Tea Calendar. I had gathered flowers for the calendar shoot and when I was done with that process I said to myself "I should take some shots of these lovely flowers." So I did. A white aster, a pink rose and a deep raspberry zinnia.
