a simple sign

So this one is a no brainer. It took me all of 10-15 minutes. I took an old framed print of a bridge (the civil engineer in me) and covered the mat with scrap fabric.

Then I printed out the words "Be Still" from Psalm 46:10 onto plain printer paper. I traced the letters very hard with a pen over top of the fabric so that it showed up a little.

Then I took a permanent marker (I call it a "sharpie" but hubby insists that the words "sharpie" and "kleenex" are BRAND names and not common nouns. whatever. where was I?)

So I took that permanent marker and I traced over my light pen line and filled in. I replaced the glass and hung my new "art" on the wall under my old junky "art" that cost $1 ladder.
