This is my entry for this weeks Just For Fun
which is 'Whats your favourite colour' ?
Mine is purple but at the moment im loving this turqouise colour too
and they both go so well together.
I started out with a basic flat wooden frame , which was a
birthday gift and its been sitting waiting to be altered for a while
and I thought it was perfect for this project.
I took some card and made templates for the frame
A separate one for the width and length
Then shaped them around the frame to get the card template creased
I took some lengths of foil tape that i had in my drawer for ages
and cut out 4 pieces using the templates i had made.
2 from each one.
Next i used some odd chipboard letters to make the word PARIS
it didnt matter that they didnt match as they were going to be hidden.
I added the tape to the frame and used a childs rolling pin to smooth it out
as i dont have a brayer
When i got to the wording i used some kitchen towel and pressed
the adhesive foil tape around the letters to allow the shapes to
I used 3 alcohol inks to just dab all around the edge of the frame
not forgetting to do the inner and outter edges also.
I kept my applicator in the same position so the
design repeated itself so that i didnt loose the colours.
When i had finished i rubbed the letters with a little blending solution to remove
the ink from the wording , I then used a soft cloth to buff that up.
Against the coloured background the wording shines beautifully.
I need to find a better 'PARIS' photo to go inside though, I have plenty
but for now i just popped in a snap i had on my desk and a couple of quotes
I love my frame and i think i may make some for gifts
Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment its much appriciated ,
