Honest Abe

In honor of President's Day, I'm posting my newly framed Abe collection. Char inspired me to complete this project that I've had in the works for a while now. I bought the frame for 50 cents at a garage sale this summer, brought it home, painted it black and stained with pecan stain. I bought a book for $1.00 that was about Lincoln and had the nice photo of him in it. I bought the Gettysburg Address at Old World Wisconsin 2 1/2 years ago, with this project in mind. I used a brown craft wrapping paper for the background and I inked the edges with a brown ink pad. The feather came with the Gettysburg Address.

  7. That is really nice. What a great idea. I wish that you would have another challenge. I made a list of what I have started again and I have 25 projects STARTED! It's an addiction! Love to start things, love to finish things. It is the in-between stuff that drives me crazy!
