More Contemporary Boho

This is line art I created on glass – by tracing a print out with a metallic paint pen . 🙂 This YouTube channel video has many great ideas that think fit right in with this modern boho style. This project I saw on the video, by Katie Bookser, in particular caught my eye.

I printed an image from the site of free images she shared and placed it under the glass of the photo frame I was using. Then with a white metallic paint pen from Dollar Tree, I simple traced the image.

Once the paint was dry, I turned it face down on a unique piece of blue scrapbook paper I placed in the frame. In the close ups, you can see a bit of writing on the paper. With the painting face down, you can easily clean the glass.

This 8”x 12” frameless photo frame is very unique. The glass and contents pop in and out from the front. You press on the edges to release them. There is also a fun surprise under the scrapbook paper. I used a snowflake picture I made this winter. Repurposing are its finest. 🙂

Photos were a little challenging due to glass reflection.

I had so much fun with tracing line art on glass yesterday, I just had to play around with another one this morning. I’ve discovered I love to do this!

The graphic is from a free vector site called vecteezy. I did a search for face line art. I traced this graphic on glass with a black permanent ink Sharpie.

The tribal peel and stick wallpaper came from Dollar Tree. The nice solid frame is a Hobby Lobby one I thrifted from somewhere.

I painted the lines on the front with a silver metallic pen and the sides with black chalk paint.

This one is true bohemian style. So cool!

I was fighting reflections on the glass, but I actually love the reflection of the leaves in the first photo. And it’s a beautiful morning on the deck for taking photos. Honeysuckle must be blooming because I can catch a whiff of it every now and then.☺️

It was a rainy day yesterday and since rainy days are made for crafting, I had a couple more projects in me.

I was in Danny’s workshop area and happened to see this cute recipe box I thrifted so long ago I didn’t even remember it. Who knows why it was in there. 🤷🏼‍♀️

I opened it up and the lid has a little shelf inside to hold a recipe card. How cool is that! The wood was natural and I decided it was the perfect thing for a modern boho decor as well as many other styles.

I immediately knew I was adding some transfers to it and knew just which ones to use from some small ones I got at Dollar Tree.

Aunt Ada’s recipe card for homemade sausage seemed like the perfect recipe to display. I love how she titled it “Correct Way” and how beautiful her handwriting was. 🥰

I also recently thrifted this solid metal bird tea light candle holder. After immersing myself in modern boho decor, I knew I had to spray paint him metallic gold. 🙂

Yesterday was definitely “A good day to have a good day!” And it quit raining, and the sun is shining, so today looks like it’s going to be a good day, too!
