Word of the Year

One of my favorite things to decorate with are photo frames. I love creating with layers and texture. Frames give a lot of alternatives. Of course I like to use them in different ways. Pictures are great but I also like using them to frame different decor.

The New Year has started and I wanted to do an inspiration wall. I came up with a word for the year and incorporated it in my design. I started with one of my oval frames I got at Dreamingincolor store.

The word I came up with for my inspiration for the year is FLY.
FLY like in soar, travel, take off in business etc.
The definition is to move in or pass through the air with wings
To rise in or be carried through the air by the wind
So this is how I came up with my ideas.

The first frame I used was a Laura Ashley frame. I remove the glass and backing. Only using the ornate frame I nailed it to the wall. I had this butterfly pin and added it to the middle. I love the meaning of the butterfly. Endurance, hope, change, life
It has wings for flight

The next one I used was a pretty turquoise frame. Keeping with the theme, I choose a nest that I also got at Dreamingincolor store. Again I removed the glass. This time I added a layer to the oval frame.

The eggs represent the birth of this idea. Representing birds,

The last frame I used was another Laura Ashley frame. I used the whole frame this time. I even used the paper insert because it was so pretty.

I printed my word of the year "FLY" and pasted it over the words on the paper.

I added my travel sign to the wall. I love the way it came out!!!

The accessories worked too and added to my travel inspiration. I had a book on Italy. The framed picture on the painted dresser was from when I was in Florence. One of my Dreamingincolor signs about travel was added too. This is definitely a wall of inspiration. I cannot wait to see what this year has to offer. I think my photo frames worked perfectly. It is something I will look at everyday.
