Whew! It has been a creating frenzy around here lately! Unfortunately, since it has been all stuff for the CHA trade show, there hasn't been much that I could share. Good news though, I have the okay to share two projects before the show. I made a couple of frames for the Therm O Web booth. They have something fun up their sleeve that they will be releasing at the show. Since my projects don't really give away what that awesome new something is, I get to share the finished projects now.
If you are attending the show be sure you stop by booth 1047 to check out the new product! If you aren't attending, I will be sure and post a follow up and tell you about the new product. I think you will love the idea!
For this frame, I combined papers from Crate Paper's Restoration collection and Making Memories Paper Reverie collection.
I covered chipboard letters from BasicGrey with a fun fabric print paper from Sassafras Lass.
To give a couple of the letters lift and to add dimension, I used Therm O Web's 3D Foam Strips. I love that these strips are long and thin and can be trimmed to whatever length I need and can curve.
The large red rose is also by Making Memories. To give it a little sparkle, I gave it a coating of Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze in Big Apple. Glimmer Glaze will adhere and dry on a number of surfaces so it is really great for dressing up plain plastic embellishments like this one.
I added a few touches of bling to these skeleton leaves by Prima. Prima had some skeleton leaves a while back that were encrusted with crystals and microbeads (you can see them on this project and here). Since they are discontinued and hard to find I have been wanting to find a way to recreate them. This is a simple version on the same idea.
I used the piecing hole guides on my Tim Holtz Design Ruler to make pencil dots for placement of these red crystals, which are from the same embellishment pack as the red rose above.
I also added a red crystal to the center of some of the flowers in the floral patterned paper.
I have something fun to share tomorrow and then will be back the day after with another frame to share.
(Oh, by the way, the stunning photo is one of my daughter Anna's senior pictures from a few years back. It was taken by St. Louis photographer Holly McCaig.)
