1.  I bought this frame in an antique mall in SODO Seattle, WA. I got it for about $8. I didn’t have a vision when I first got it, but when I decided to work on this project, I knew this was the perfect frame.

2. I found this beautiful green chevron and gold metallic paper @ a cute little store at the University Village in Seattle called Papyrus.

3. I chose the Font of JOY I wanted on my computer, printed it, and cut it out to use as a template for my Gold paper. I then traced the Joy on to the gold paper and cut it out. I simply glued the JOY on to the chevron paper and put it in the frame.

4.  The finished Product! I plan on hanging it on this wall, which I am in the middle of painting :)
