I hate that this post is coming up so late in the day, but I have been filling a bit under the weather today. Luckily most of this project was finished yesterday, so I just had to get my act together to finish it off and take the final photos!
I thought it would be fun to particpate in the January's Create with Me: Rosette Frames at UCreate. I had the perfect project for it!
Though now I realize I didn't actually follow the rules since my flowers aren't rosettes. Maybe Kari will forgive me? :)
My in-laws gave me a digital photo frame a couple of Christmas' ago. I love it! BUT, it does NOT match my decor. At all!
Everytime I walk by my Singer desk I always hear the tune "One of these things is not like the other one!"
The shiny black mod frame just does.not.match.
So I decided to give it a makeover!
I found some fun scrapbook paper in my stash.
Traced the edges of the frame onto the paper.
Measured where to cut the center out of the frame.
Now I have a lovely matte overlay!
I set it atop my frame to make sure everything fit.
I don't know if you noticed the other frames on my Singer desk, but there is a lot of bling going on.
I want my frame to blend in with all of these other frames!
The scrapbook paper is pretty blinged out by itself, but I added a little something extra to the sides to make it even more shiney.
I also added some brown ribbon around the inside edge to complete things off.
Looks good to me! Now I just need to add some flowers...
I made 3 pom pom flowers in colors that match the decor of my living room where the Singer desk lives.
I made these pom pom flowers a little differently from the traditional pom pom.
You can find the tutorial for making these here.
Now that looks a lot better!
