The sentiment (from Shakespeare's "Venus and Adonus") is one of my personal favorites . It reads, "Love comforteth like the sunshine after rain." PhotoShop was used to configure the layout and font of the sentiment, then printed onto an 8-1/2" X 11" piece of Gray Vellum Paper. The wet ink on the vellum was allowed to dry completely, then the vellum was cut down to the exact size of the frame window. A piece of thick, clear plastic was used inside the frame window (instead of glass), so the sentiment panel was placed behind it. The flower was secured to the lower left corner of the frame window with Pop-Up Glue Dots.
That's it for today...so what do you think? I had a blast working on this, so I have made plans to make at least one altered project a week.

Thanks for stopping by today, and don't forget to leave a comment on the post above to win some BLOG CANDY if you haven;t already made one. Thanks also for all of your kind words and encouragement!
