$2 Garage Sale Frame Makeover

This $2 garage sale frame has been sitting in my home office since July.  Yup, July.  I kept knocking into it this past week so something just had to be done with it:
I have been wanting to use this Graphics Fairy image for a while now.  I printed out the image onto transfer paper and ironed it onto a piece of scrap Osnaburg fabric.  I gathered up some random French-y pieces to add as well.  I hand-stamped the coffee tag with a vintage-inspired French postcard.  Then I added some French book paper - after distressing the front and edges.  The Parisien tag is also from The Graphics Fairy.

I was hoping to have a larger key but, alas, I did not so I had to use the little one.  I like the shadowbox look and feel of it!  AND that I had everything I needed!

July? You don't really think that is all that long do you? Because I have stuff in bags from the thrift store last July (as in July a year ago or possibly longer)! Hello, I am a junquer with a major problem! Looks great. Enjoy and thanks for sharing.

Oooh, la, la! I love it! The graphics are perfect, and I always love keys. One of these days I need to get brave and try the image transfer paper:)
