Ok so before we get to Stephanie's big reveal, we have a few pretty wonderful DIY's we need to share. First up: this awesomely simple gold leafed art, inspired a bit by Lovely Little Details + Song Ink's gorgeous print and a bit by this fun print we saw on My favourite part about this particular project is that you can customize it to your hearts content. Have a favourite saying? A special date? Go forth and make golden art!

Materials A printer that can print 11x17” prints, or access to a FedEx Office
“Be Still and Know” template
11”x14” picture frame
Gold leaf
Adhesive size
2 small paintbrushes

step-1 Download the “Be Still and Know” template and print on the cardstock. Trim along the dotted lines.

step-2 Carefully paint adhesive size to cover the “Know”. Let dry 15 mins, until tacky to the touch.

step-3 Press gold leaf sheets on the adhesive. Use the second paintbrush to gently rub off the excess gold leaf.

step-4 Place the print in the frame, and voila!
