John Mayer is one of my favorite artists, and on his latest album there is a song called "Love is a Verb". The lyrics are really simple, but they embody so much of what I believe love truly is. It's not something that you own, it's something you do. It takes time, work and countless "little moments" to create. It's an action state, something to always work on and never allow yourself to be passive toward.
After almost 7 years with Doug, I can attest that love being something you do is the mentality that gets you through almost anything together. With this sweet little phrase encompassing so much, I decided to make it into a little piece of art and hang it on my wall.
A quick "How to" for the DIYers :: Creating the art was pretty easy! I just painted a wooden board my base color, cut out letters from an old map, and glued them on with tacky glue. The roses were glued on with a hot glue gun. I outlined the lettering with a gold sharpie and painted varnish on before the gold coloring was dry so that it bled a little, creating an "antique" look.
What's a frame-worthy song lyric that you've heard lately?
