Fremtiden er Lys

Fremtiden er Lys

A few months back, my dad ripped off this bit of advertisement from a Norwegian newspaper and hung it with long cuts of dirty masking tape beside the entryway to our kitchen. Back then, we went through a rough time. Fremtiden er Lys means, “The Future is Bright”.

Earlier this week I felt the urge to declutter, and contribute bits of pieces I’ve learned [in college] through styling & decorating, and being creative around the house. I decided to put down what my dad had taped to the wall. Then I carefully ripped the phrase out and mounted it on a piece of wood I had painted white (with sanded edges & corners to create a ‘distressed’ look), destroyed a necklace by stealing one of its chains and nailed it to the [now] artwork.

I haven’t decided yet where to hang it. But it will be somewhere I will see day in & day out to be reminded of a bright future. After all, change is the only constant thing in this world. Whenever you go through a rough time, embrace yourself, for things will change.
It will only get better and better.

      Hi Janice! Thank you for your great suggestion.
      However, I find there would be too much color going on, and would like the background and text to be as desaturated as possible to give emphasis to the photos.
      But that was such a good suggestion, in fact, that you have given me a great idea for the next posts to come!
      Thanks. 🙂
