Framed with Love

Hope you are all well.  Only another two days before the weekend, yippee!!

Just popping by to let you all know about the new challenge starting over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges today.
We have a nice easy theme for you this week, one that everyone loves 'Anything Goes'.  For full details just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  You are free to enter anything you like as long as it fits with the challenge theme.

I used a fab image from one of our sponsors, Eureka Stamps, for my project this week.  I decided to do something completely different and I have made a picture to hang in my craft room.


Now, I didn't have a ready madewooden picture frame the right size so just went ahead and made my own out of card. After much measuring, scoring, folding and sticking the frame was complete.  To make it more sturdy I decopatched it using some decopatch paper and glue that I had.  I think decopatch could be one of my new loves.  For the image I printed it out twice and decoupaged all the little elements (tulips, hearts etc).  They are all coloured in promarkers.  The finishing touch to the picture itself was some gems and liquid pearls.  To finish the frame off I added some wooden embellishments that I won a few weeks ago and some butterfly stickers.  This will now take pride of place on my newly decorated craft room wall.

Here is another picture that hopefully shows the depth to the frame.


I really enjoyed doing this but next time I will stick to a ready made frame and just decopatch it.

Looking forward to seeing all your entries for the anything goes challenge.  Maybe, I have even inspired you to try something different.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Hotshot Craft - Anything but a card
Allsorts - Things with wings
Crafty Cardmakers - Blooming images
Stamp N Doodle - Anything goes
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes

the sound of piano and based on such vast change of scales,
a song sounds so melodious.
