Below is the framed project I created.
The Beautiful Couple in the photo is Sandy Redburn's ( owner of Crafty Secrets) parents. If you read the Heartwarming Vintage Blog you may be aware that Sandys Dad recently pass away. My heart has been with Sandy and her family.. and very much with her mom Rachel. I've been lucky enough to get to know Rachel through my many visits to Sandy's over the years. I started out with the idea of making a card for her and then it graduated into this layout/altered frame. Below you can see the layout "outside" the frame.
I used the Crafty Secrets "Digital Vintage Valentine Kit" for this project. It's great that there are so many "love" themed papers and elements that will work things like this, other than just Valentines.
About the frame. I found this frame at a thrift store, and have been wanting to alter it. It started out all gold. I used a foam brush to apply white acrylic paint to it, and then while it was still wet, I lightly wiped way the top layers of paint.
And it's hard to tell here from this straight on photo, but I also printed this put twice, so that I could cut out the Birds and roses on the second printed sheet, and add them to the other sheet using foam squares for more dimension.
Now... here are the links to the Design Team girls blogs so you can see their amazing projects. I've seen sneak peeks, and I'm telling you.. you wont be disappointed!
And remember to pop over to the Heartwarming Vintage Blog. I hope you'll join us and play along.
