Monogram Art -Tweek

Today on my lunch break I wandered around Big Lots. Not looking for anything in particular, just browsing. And I saw this piece of art with a really pretty "L" monogrammed on it, and another separate plaque with a cute lil definition of love. for only $8. If you don't know, L is the first initial of my last name, Lueken. Mmmhmmm, that is it...nice huh? I acquired it in 2003 :) So I decided it had to come home with me...I had a plan for the little guy.


After a little deconstruction...

I took out the little "love" saying.

Then after a little visit with my trusty friend "Picnik" I played around a bit and came up with this.By trial and error, and a few prints later, 4x6 index card seamed to work great!

I performed some minor surgery, and here we go! All done! It looks great, huh?
I am proud of this easy schmeasy and super cheap project, with a gorgeous look!

Here it is in its home...The enrty way.

I hope you enjoyed that...and remember to try to find potential in everything!

This looks great! How funny that I have the same exact picture! I also got a matching one @ Big Lots that is an "F" and talks about Family. Then I went to Kirklands-my FAV store and found a big monogram picture with similar style and a large "P" for my last name. I put all three over my couch and it looks great. I love how you changed yours up-very cool!
