I am so excited to announce the Rose Blossom Spring Summer Idea Book Blog Hop! There are 8 of us in the hop, and I promise you that you will learn tons from each and every stop. I haven't seen what my team has created, but I know their exceptional style and artwork. So I am going to be surprised and in awe on this journey, too! Should you get lost along the way, come back here, and you will find the complete blog list at the bottom of this post.
Today, I am sharing one of our fabulous new My Creations Pennant Frames.
I wanted to use this beautiful photo of my mother for this project, and I thought Balloon Ride paper was the perfect choice! There is a die-cut on the Artbooking cartridge for the frame to make it quick and easy to cover the frame. I painted Liquid Glass on the frame to adhere the paper. (Note: To paint Liquid Glass, just put a small dollop on a paper plate and use like paint. You get nice even coverage that way.)
Let me show you the rolled flowers up close:
Because this is a shadow-box type frame, I was able to put two flowers on the inside and offset them with one on the outside. This die-cut is also found on Artbooking, and they are rolled up quickly and easily using our quilling tool. Use your Liquid Glass to get a nice strong hold. I added some clear epoxy gems to the middle. I love those little round gems!
I've balanced the photo with some large flowers from the Balloon Ride Dimensional Elements:
Lo and behold, there are those epoxy gems again! For a little cluster, I tied a double strand of metallic baker's twine around the whole frame and accented it with one of the Balloon Ride resin complements.
This was a fun project to make, and it was really quite simple! I will be having a pennant frame class in March (with another paper), so watch for the information on that one!
Your next stop on the blog hop is my ever-so-lovely team member Sara. I can't wait to go over there and see what she has created for us! In case you get lost, here is a full list of Rose Blossoms in the hop:
