This month the challenge was to incorporate wood into the project and I have my go to project. I just love this technique and it can be changed up in so many ways. But before I start, lets take care of the housekeeping issues. You should have arrived here from: Jennifer. If you got lost, you can start at the beginning: Club Scrap link. Your next stop is:Deb
Ok for the project: I used this months kit: Garden Shed and a frame from Pink Paisley. Any similar frame would work.
Close up of the resist.
Using a variety of spray inks: Tattered Angels, Heidi Swapp and ColourArt Sprayed the frame until I had the right color. I was using the ribbon in the kit and the paper for inspiration.
Once Dry I cut a piece of paper and adhered to back and attatched a clip board holder.
Last step was to stamp words and images onto the frame using black Archival Ink.
Now onto the sayings:
I cut a piece of cardstock 3.5 X 4" and then used a square die to make a "Polaroid Like frame.
I was going to play with the new digital files, but in the end fussy cut the sayings that were in the kit, stamped the frames and then cut a second rectangle to completely finish the back. Nice.
Once I had this all done, it just looked plain. So off to Hobby Lobby and purchased some flowers, made an arrangement, tied a bow, added a bird, Finished.
The sayings can be changed as the mood strikes, or it can be used as a shadow box to display a photo. I apologize for the photos, I redid my craft room and messed up my lighting. I will fix it for the blog hop, i promise.
Glad to be back crafting again,
See you next week for the blog hop and I will post a complete update on my Daughter's equestrian Journey to the Paralympics.
