Some Frames

I wanted to try my hand at decorating some frames for a project. I looked around and checked out some different blogs, and a fellow pea at Two Peas in a Bucket, Tammy Tutterow, shared some pictures of some! frames she has made. You can see them here.

Well, after looking at her gorgeous frames, I was rather intimidated. But, I decided that my frames, although not the pieces of art that Tammy creates, would be fine if I just enjoyed myself and used what I had on hand.

Here is one I did using Nancy Burke's rose technique. This frame was made with some older DCWV shimmer paper, a couple of Prima leaves, and a Basic Grey pink pearl embellishment.

Then I had to make some frames for a few friends using some girly paper. This was the outcome.

Last week I got the chance to meet up with Nancy Burke at CHA and then to meet Tammy Tutterow at the Prima booth. After walking the CHA floor for two afternoons, I came home inspired to try at least one more frame. A masculine one this time, so stay tuned!
