The photo I scrapped is an older one of my youngest daughter dancing around the backyard (in her nightie no less) with a home-made ribbon on a pencil! She was so free spirited, no care for who's watching....oh to be 7 again! lol! I was going to share how I made the twine circle frame with some photos but I accidently erased the pic's from my camera before I had a chance to move them over to my computer! (Along with loads of recent pic's of the kids and their friends that I'd meant to move to the computer!...so frustrating!) But I can give a brief explanation. I layed out my circle cut photo under a piece of plastic wrap (this helps in gaging how big to make the twine circle). I then took some kitchen twine and wrapped it a few times in a circle framing my photo and leaving enough twine to tie a bow. I then took a small paper cup and poured a little bit of Gesso into it. I took the cut piece of twine and dunked it in the Gesso and then layed it on the plastic wrap over the photo so that it nicely framed the pic, tying a bow in the two ends. Leave to dry. When it's dry it will become rigid and easy to glue to your layout!
I used a few Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces as well to accent this page (Sweetpea Border, Mini Scrolls #2)...I decided to keep the Sweetpea border natural because I liked the soft brown with the pinks....I also used some of their new paint collections as well! Thanks so much for stopping by again, I so appreciate your visiting with me! xo
