FAMILY FRAME...."Family is everything"
This year, I am starting early on the teachers Christmas gifts so this week for Generations Crafting I altered a wooden frame from Michael's for one of my daughters teachers. Here is a picture of the 12 x 12 frame (It will fit up to a 5 x 7 photo):
Well if you notice, this frame can either be hung on the wall or stood on a table......I took all the screws off the frame, sanded it and painted it with Acrylic paint in a mushroom color (so beautiful). Then I chose this beautiful paper from the Basic Grey Pyrus Collection (Oblate) and I placed it on the frame, traced out the opening for the picture and cut it out. Once I had the paper ready, I placed the frame aside and started working on the pattern paper....choosing flowers, pearls, stamps, inks, pins, etc.
Here is the final frame......unfortunately when I put it all together, I noticed I had set it all up UPSIDE DOWN!!!!! LOL....these things ONLY happen to me LOL.....I just started laughing.....what was I to do right????? The final frame can only be hung now instead of having the option of placing it on a table or hanging but it's OK....I really love the way it turned out.
Supplies: Basic Grey Pyrus: Oblate (Main background); Basic Grey Pyrus: Elements Stickers (Flower boarder to the left); Prima Swirls with Lace (Gold); Prima Autumn Harvest Ginger flowers
