Last weekend, I stopped by JoAnn’s for their 40% off sale on scrapbook supplies. While I was there, I found this cute unfinished wood frame and thought it would be fun to alter for a challenge on Sketches for All. I was originally going to use Graphic45 papers for it, but saw on their blog that one of their DT members made a frame almost exactly like what I had in mind (check it out when you have a chance, great blog for inspiration!). Then I remembered that Webster’s Pages has a challenge on their blog where all you need to do to enter is incorporate some of their bloomers and/or trims in your project. Scrap Whispers is also having a challenge (challenge 88) where you use a forgotten treasure, so I used the paint that Larry had bought last year for Madison’s dollhouse. 😀 Here’s what I came up with:
There’s a bit of a glare on the the papers in that photo, so here’s the frame at an angle:
