Well by the time this posts we will be on the final day of Scrapbook Expo in Brisbane! I've had to pre-schedule the post as I'm not sure what my internet access will be and I have to say I'm getting so excited to see what the show brings this year! Scrapmatts fabulous customers that are lucky enough to be able to come along to the show will be in for a treat with the newly released Art Frames that will be for sale on the stand. My Scrapmatts class that I'm teaching this year is using the big 12 x 12 Frame but I've had a ball playing with the smaller 8 x 8 frames - so many ideas my mind is spinning (grin!!!)
First I had to go vintage and add one of the new Lamps (I've pestered poor Andrew for these lamps and I was so excited when he cut them!). The frame has been covered in one of Tim Holtz's Tissue Tapes and then a Gel Medium added over the top to secure it:
Using Scrapmatts chipboard 8 x 8 Art Frame, Lamps 11 CB6109 , Scrapwords CB1199, CB1197 and CB1189 along with Scrapmatts Charms Filigree Flower 9 CH069, Clock from Assorted Charms CH031 and Steampunk Key. Prima Marketing Light Globe, Flower and Glass Dome
I loved making this one so much I did a matching one using the second style of the Art Frames:
Using Scrapmatts chipboard 8 x 8 Art Frame, Tabs 01 CB5117, Scrapwords CB1189 and CB1197 along with Scrapmatts charms Filigree Flower #7 CH014 and Steampunk Clock. The gorgeous vintage images are from Pion Designs
Here are the two frames together:
Next I wanted to pretty it up a bit so I chose a floral Washi Tape to go around the outside of the frame:
Finally I went for a beach theme. I wound Twine around the outer frame and a wood grain Washi Tape around the inner frame and then attached it all together with a hot glue gun. Warning! If you do this one - the twine takes a while so do it in front of the TV!
Thanks for sticking with me through this long post!
Happy creating :)
