Framed "Let it Be" Print



Music is powerful and has been a form of therapy for me. When I'm in a bad mood at work I listen to songs like pharell's "Happy," and I cheer right up.

My favorite band is the Beatles; I know, I have an old soul.  I usually turn to their music when I need some uplifting.  I feel like many of the Beatles songs are speaking directly to me. After my friend Bryan died, I spent a lot of time listening to music.  The song"Let it Be" helped mend me and my coping during that time in my life.  The lyrics of the song remind me that there is a greater plan for all of us, although we may not know what it is just yet.  You gotta move forward and "let it be".

Now on to the project!

I find myself hoarding frames when I find them on sale.  This frame was from the dollar tree and was originally brown. I painted it light blue with multi purpose paint. I used powerpoint to create the graphics and tested it in the frame with different font sizes until I found the  font/size I liked.  Once that was achieved, I printed it on photo paper to get a better quality print.


My framed lyric project is a great reminder of something that is close to my heart. Find something that motivates you and turn it into a beautiful framed art piece.

Make it Spicy and Beautiful,
Amanda
