Shhhh...DH's Christmas present!


this is a floating frame I did up for my DH for Christmas using an ....wait for it...LOL...Allison Davis sketch :) It's from the sketch support class I took. The frame is not what I really wanted size wise but this was the closest to a 12X24 I could get at my Michael's it's a 16X20. Ali did one in class and it was 10X26 but my stores had nothing like that. I did some adjusting to my pics from the original sketch. I trimmed my 4X6s on the top a bit, trimmed down my 6X4 on the far left top-because I had the added length in height I didn't use smaller pics but larger on the bottom. I LOVE how this turned out. PS the picture is with a carpet behind it just so it would show up a bit. Due to the fact that the frame is very thin I only used paper heart buttons for the flowers, I wasn't going to add any embellie because I did want the flowers but I couldn't think of a flower center and couldn't have them nakie! Then I remembered my sizlets dies for buttons! Yippeee! I also added some Making memories metal words because they were perfect for this...two of them I had to sand the original paint off them because it was a turquoisey green...totally didn't go in my opinion. Remember you can click on the pic to get it bigger!
I think I'm hooked and want to make more of these! Hopefully I will eventually find a more rectangular frame like the 10X26 one that Ali had found.
Thanks for Looking! :)Have a great weekend!
