Frame it!

I love frames! There are times when I am struggling to complete a layout and a frame can be all it needs to balance it properly.
When I saw the Amy Tangerine papers from American Crafts that were awash with frames I knew I had to have them, all of them!! The colours and patterns were just so lush I couldn’t wait to play!
For the first layout I cut out all the little frames and layered them on my page raising the photo with 3d foam pads to give it a focal point.
This photo of my granddaughter bending into the wind is so cute and the colours worked perfectly with these papers

For the second layout I cut out the large frame and then gutted the centre, trimming it to give a border so that when it was mounted onto black cardstock it gave it more definition. The adorable little clouds here were perfect for the theme, and the cute little doodled borders, when cut out, were ideal to use as strips for the journalling.
The title seems to be rather appropriate at the moment with the poor weather we’ve had this weekend.

The photo had quite a bit going on in the background, so rather than edit it in photoshop I decided to doodle around it instead, creating yet another frame.

and finally, for the third layout I cut out one of the larger frames and cut it in half, positioning it to make a
more abstract frame,

the funky flowers worked well for boys or girls layouts because they’re not too girly.

I hope you are all enjoying your bank holiday/ Jubilee weekend and that the weather hasn’t put too much of a dampener (if you’ll excuse the pun!) on your celebrations!

I used the following products:
