Hey there all! Laura here today, and I've got
another project created with one of my very
favorite new products in the Clear Scraps line!
These new Desktop Frames are adorable! They
come in several choices, so you can create a project
that can just be a nice decor project without a picture,
or you can add your favorite photos for a personal
touch! This Family Desktop Frame was perfect to
showcase a photo from one of our vacations.
Love how easy this one is to create too, less is
really more on these frames, because the word
at the top acts like an embellishment and title all
in one! To create this frame, I started with paint.
I painted the word family in gray, and the frame part
in green. After it was dry I brushed the edges with
black ink to make the frame a true focal point, since
I was going to add a picture that I wanted as the center
of attention! The blank space under the word family,
I measured and cut a piece of family themed patterned
paper to act as a background for my photo.
You can see it peeking out from behind the photo.
I matted the photo and added the "our family"
title with a fun sticker behind to highlight my
title. This frame project also shows you that
you do not have to use a full 4x6 photo if you
don't want to. This smaller photo works great,
and it gives you a little more visual interest to
add the matching themed patterned paper
behind the photo.
The base of the frame is also painted. I like to
use the contrasting colors (the gray and green)
rather than leaving it all one color. I'm all
about mixing it up!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Stop back soon for more inspiration!
