Good Morning Everyone!!!
I have been a little out of it. I am still working on the file folder tutorial. I still have a couple of projects on my desk that I need to do and are giving me fits because I want them to be perfect. So, I apologize for not posting them as I said I would...they are going to be here, soon! Please stick with me, I promise I will get them done. But in the meantime...I made this a little while ago, and thought I would share it with you.
I saw this paper by Basic Gray from their "Clippings" line, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. This is one of my favorite pictures of me and my husband, DJ. I wanted to create a page that I could hang up in my room, and I thought this would be perfect.
The "frame" is a recycled (or should I say repurposed?) box that my son's Graduation Picture Portfolio came in. I took the bottom of the box, cut the corners, then folded the sides in the other direction, so that I could fit it inside the lid of the box, effectively lining it with the black color of the box. I adhered it all together with score tape. To hang it, I just place eyelets and threaded a black ribbon through the top of my "frame".
I think this is fun and eclectic. I love all of the different elements that I was able to use in it. I literally just started adding things, not really thinking about it, just going with my gut feelings about what needed to be added. When I started to stare at the page, without adding things...I knew I was done. Does anyone else do that too?
What do you think?
Stay Crafty, My Friends!
