Reverse Silhouette Key Picture

I worked on a super easy project tonight that took less than 30 minutes to make.

I have a number of these old flat keys.
 I picked out three and arranged them on a scrap piece of foam core board.
 I spray painted over the keys and let it dry completely before handling.
 I removed the keys, found an old frame and a black and white mat in my studio, cut the foam core board to size and framed my little piece of art.
 The edges aren't as sharp on the little key in the middle but I think it turned out pretty cute.
I'm linking with Donna @ Funky Junk Interiors for her Saturday Nite Special party.
Always a lot of great projects!!

Hope you're enjoying your weekend.

  2. Thanks for sharing this. My daughter loves old keys and I bet would love a little framed piece like this. Seems simple enough that even I could handle it. :)

  8. I love it! I made some altered books last summer and we used stencils and glimmer mist to make negatives. So fun. Your project turned out great. I'm liking the silverware idea above...

  12. Great idea! That reminded me I cut some stencils of keys. I'll have to get those out and do some no music paper.
    Thanks for reminding me! =)

  15. Looks great. You are so clever.
    I recently picked up three of the old metal receipt sticks/posts. They are the kind that have a sharp metal rod on a base and were used to keep receipts at a store or on a desk I suppose. Any clever ideas of what I might do with them other than just group them as an interesting vignette?
