Well, the calendar says it's SPRING but the snow flying around outside
leads me to believe otherwise! LOL!
Hello fellow bloggers ... Happy Friday to you and thanks for stopping by!
The creation I have to share with you today is an ALTERED FRAME, created with SPRINGTIME in mind and for this week's challenge at Joan's Gardens!
|Click on image to enlarge . . .|
- Use a square
- Alter something...even if it is a card
- Use flower paper...you can make it
- You must use something sold at Joan's Gardens on your card.
Here is the recipe for this altered frame and the items highlighted in RED were purchased through Joan's Gardens:
Papers: Graphic45 'A Lady's Diary' 8x8 paper pack, white cardstock, SU 'sage shadow' cardstock

Stamps: Hero Arts, Verve
Inks: Versafine Onyx, Tim Holts 'Tea Dye', 'Scattered Straw', Momento 'Bamboo Leaves'
Accessories: Cheery Lynn Designs B117 'Fanciful Flourish', Heartfelt Creations 'Daisy Patch Dies', PunchBunch 'Big Sky' punch, Punch Bunch 'Flower Making Kit', Spellbinder 'Classic Circles' dies, Poppystamps.com 'Grassland Border' die, Reflections Bird Floral Embellishment, Fiskars Swivel Craft Knife, Wooden Clothespin, FolkArt '632 Rose Pink' acrylic paint, sponge brush, Gold Stickles, Michaels $1 Wooden Frame (3.7"x3.7"), Mod Podge
This was such a fun, easy project! Next time you are at Michael's, be sure to check out these $1 frames.
On the left is what the frame looked like in the package. On the right is what it looked like after painting around the edge, adding the design paper, stamping the sentiment and a little fussy cutting to add the flowers from the opening cut out.
I hope you've enjoyed today's creation . . . I know I had a great time creating it! In fact, since these frames were only $1 each, I stocked up on a few extras and I'm sure you'll be seeing a few more decorated for gift giving in the near future! My mind is still in a whirl with ideas on how I can alter this frame ...
