DSC #81 - Add a Frame

Welcome to my FIRST official Design Team project for Digitally Sweet Challenges!

This week we are sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet. We, the DT, were given a wonderful choice of image to create from. I chose this fushia to create a lovely layout with photos of my daughter, Aurora, and the digi stamp. I left everything monochrome as I kinda like that look in my home. How I did this is below:

I started with one of those simple frames that is just a pane of thin glass with clips that clip it onto a mat base. Mine was large, 12" x 9.5" which is larger than an A4 piece of paper so I had to adapt it somehow. I created my layout in Photoshop by opening a A4 sized image then added my daughter's photos, the fushia digi stamp and a canvas texture looking border which I printed out on good quality paper.

I trimmed the image some so it fit evenly under the glass. I clipped the frame back together. Then I took black cardstock and cut out a frame a little bigger than A4. The borders are 1" wide. Then I handstamped around the frame, covered with silver embossing powder and heated it up. I glued this right on top of the glass. I hand punched small butterflies in white card, added some silver embossing to those as well and scattered them around the frame.

This frame is going to hang in my lounge. I'm sure my daughter will hate I love it. Hope you like it too and it inspires you to use digital printable around your home!
