The theme at A Vintage Journey is Fond Memories.
I tried to think of just one but had far too many.
So, I decided to make a photo frame.
This way I can change the memory!!
It took a week to make and dry!
The piece is made from some grey board off the back of a pad.
Covered in Tim Holtz French Industry paper.
Stamps are Tim's new Bird Feather.
Trellis - Tim's Frameworks die
Frame made from corrugated cardboard
Book Label - Fond Memories
Tim's tag & labels die with Anita's gloss
Leaves - PoppyStamp dies.
It wasn't very easy to photograph
so I took a couple of shots.
The side view shot shows the dimension
of the leaves around the nest
I chose to stamp in the picture
area so that it remains a
decorative piece even
This view is of the frame including a photo
a very favourite memory
La Marchaderie, Limousin
A place I went twice with my sister, Tracy.
She has this photo framed & on her bedroom windowsill
I feel I may need to make a matching
frame with a Landscape frame opening!
Finally, I have my Art Journal page to share.
It was supposed to be ready last week,
however an incident with a jar of water
meant a few days further pressed under a book!!!
It didn't quite translate to paper as well
as the image in my head. I wanted the page to
be fairly plain with an explosion of colour
but it looked wrong that way.
The main image is Juliet - Indigoblu stamp
but, I have masked the image
to make the hair fuller.
I have punched mini butterflies to glue
in the hair as it accentuated the ones in the stamping.
I also used my new Memory Box Delphiniums stencil
to add height & interest to the wild garden below her.
The colours were all re-inker sprays.
