I love art and I am really picky so usually the art I want is out of my price range. I decided to try out a sharpie art after researching it online and I was estatic! I got the exact look I wanted.

Step 1: Old Window Frame
I bought an old window frame from craigslist for $10, spray washed it and was considering painting but the I felt like the old paint gave it more character so i just sanded it lightly, added one very light coat of polyurethane I had from a previous project and started on the picture.
Step 2: Sharpie Time!
I bought 3 different glass pen sharpies in slightly different oranges. Fine point, medium and broad. All the pens were somewhere between 3-4 dollars. I printed out a free flower clipart I found online in multiple sizes piecing them together to make 3 different sized flowers on what would be the front side of the frame (this way you don't have to worry about touchy fingers and your artwork will be on inside against wall) Tracing carefully and adding a little big of freestyle I finished my art work in less than 30minutes. I waited an hour and tried to smudge a small corner out of curiosity and nothing! Go sharpie!
