Never Dull your Sparkle painted sign
The sentiment, "Never Lose Your Sparkle" has special meaning to me as the mom of a child with multiple medical and special needs... over the years I have watched my daughter's 'sparkle' dull with each insensitive word spoken, each taunt, each tease, each and every daily 'happening' that reminds her she is in a sense 'different' from others. My mission has been and always will be to keep that Sparkle bright! No child should ever allow anyone to dull their sparkle- they are all beautifully and wonderfully made individuals with a purpose and a heart...
This sign was handpainted on wood slats left over from the supports of an Ikea bed believe it or not!
5 of the slats were fastened togeather in the back and hand painted a pretty bright pink. The covered in a creamy bright white and distressed to allow the pink to peep thru!
My favorite sentiment "Never let anyone, ever... dull your Sparkle " was handpainted on the sign in a rich chocolate brown.
Luv luv luv it! Sorry, it was hard to capture the shine in the photos.
