~ Home decor ~

This is a frame I bought from Next and made my own. It currently sits on the wall in my lounge.

To make the pieces of artwork I used distress inks to colour the edges of the card, then stamped the verse in the centre. I made a mask of the verse then stamped images aound the verse overlapping them using different coloured inks. Then remove the mask to reveal the untouched verse.

These were simply made by colouring the edges with distress inks then stamping a Tim Holtz stamp in peeled paint distress ink down one side then attaching a pendant on the other. Bakers twine then used to decorate.

Kitten update: Today Oscar and Millie went for their first vaccinations. They were very brave.

Unfortunately today has not held any crafting time for me and I'm not sure tomorrow will either. I'm desperate to play with my Scrapagogo kits that have sat unused for the last few months.

Happy Crafting!

What a lovely idea! It really personalises not only the frame, but the space you hang it in. Love it!

That is gorgeous, love the colours and the way the decorated panels enhance the photos. Hope you don't mind, I pinned it.
