My Scrap Chick has a brand new series of stacked frames! I'm loving them and the Horizontal Frame was perfect for this project. They are simple to put together and if you don't like the beveled inside of the frame, you can change it. Easy!
I used my electronic cutting machine to not only speed up the process but to ensure clean cuts and sizes.
Once all the pieces were cut, I used a full page embossing folder from Craftwell and the cut-n-boss to do the embossing. I cut some stars from a recycled aluminum can.
Now for more fun!
Using the ebrush and the siphon attachment I added color to each of the frame pieces using some fabric dye I had left over from another project. Set aside to dry. When dry, I assembled the frame according to the directions in the pdf file.
The stars required some color... so some acrylic paint and a bit of blue glass cleaner to "dilute" it a bit, made a perfect solution for the opaque white stars. The blue and red stars were colored using some Spectrum Noir markers. I added a star eyelet from my stash to each for a little more festive look.
The frames would be a great summer project for kids 8 and above with parental supervision. The stars have sharp edges, so paper stars might be a better idea for kids. I would love to do these with my grands... and who knows, we just might get the opportunity later this summer!
Thanks for dropping by! Hoping you'll be spending some time creating and crafting soon!
