Twirl & Enjoy!

Good morning!  Sherry here with you today and I have a frame to share using Quietfire Design’s Twirl & Enjoy and some new Graphic 45 papers.

When I was at CHA, I was lucky enough to “score” Graphic 45’s new collection, Artisan Style, which is the paper used in today’s project.  I found an old shadowbox frame in my chipboard stash which is the base for the project.  The frame came in 4 thin pieces with an acrylic cover (which was not used).  Using double-sided tape, the frame was assembled, the edges painted black and then the paper was adhered to the top using the same tape.

For the sentiment, “do what makes you happy”, a coordinating sheet of the paper was aligned with the opening of the frame and marked around the edges.  In order to get the sentiment in the proper spacing, a stamp-a-ma-jig was used and the sentiment was stamped in black.

The flowers were made by covering grungepaper with more coordinating paper from the Artisan Style collection, and then die cutting.  The back and edges of the flowers were inked with Orange Blossom ink.  The leaves are Art Parts that were inked with Leaf Green and highlighted with squiggles.    Vintage black buttons were used for the flower centers.

Thanks for stopping by and joining me today!
