Framed Art!!!

Hi Stampers . . . .

I am very excited to share with you a piece of "framed art" I made on my lunch break this past Wednesday. I was so pleased with how it came out it really "killed" me to wait until today to post it. . . . it did help having stampers over on Wednesday so that I could point it out to them.

Applying Decor Elements onto picture frames is a wonderful way for people to decorate without having the permanency of applying them to the wall. I say permanent, because once I put one up it's going to be there for a few years. . . all the Decor Elements are removable, but not reusable!

This is also a perfect way for those who rent to decorate, because when you move it can move with you!!!

For this project I first found a picture frame . . this one was on sale at Menards for about $14. Size is 16x20.

Then I made sure the glass was clean and dry and applied the Tree, Thoughts & Prayers (Chocolate Small Size 116002 $12.95) to the top of the glass.

Then I took my scissors and cut apart the Directions of your Dreams (Chocolate Small Size 116076 $10.95) and applied them as shown above. You can see in the picture below how the image was. . . it looks great that way, but if I left it as is it wouldn't have worked with the project. . . . so by cutting it I made it work. . . . and it looks GREAT if I do say so myself!

Finally I took a family picture we had taken last summer and mounted it onto Chocolate Chip card stock and put that onto poster board, which I had cut down to the correct size.

Now the hardest step is to decide where I want to hang it. Right now it's in my family room for all to see, but it just might make it's way into my bedroom. :o)

Thanks for stopping by, and please let me know if you need help making your own framed art!

I love this idea! Thanks for sharing. I also love that it is not on the wall and that you lose it if you want to remove it. Mary

Georgia, this is also a great idea for people like me who may have a rough texture on the wall, to have these if they so wish but wouldn't be able to otherwise. Thanks so much for giving me another option!!
