Hello Everyone!

Mandy here with this Friday's Challenge.  The challenge is to try String Art. The design team have created some amazing layouts for you to be inspired by.  Alternatively you can use string or twine in a creative way. (please try and be more creative than just machine stitching or wrapping of twine).
Can't wait to see everyone's fabulous creations with this challenge!! :)

Here is the layout I created for you…

A Beautiful Day with Connie and the Spring Gardens Kit!

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

Hi Everyone! Connie here and it's my turn at Frosted Designs.  I am loving the April kit "Spring Garden".  Since spring is finally here in the North Country. (Sorta) I dug up a spring photo from last year. My daughter Serena and her boyfriend at Prom. I love that her dress can go with so many of my printed paper.  


I started by using a lace punch.
I inked the edges 
trimmed pattern paper to 11 x 11
cut top piece 4 x 11
applied to base
I cut another pattern paper 1 x 11
I painted gesso on the fabscrap chipboard piece and when it was dry lightly inked it.
I added another frame from a border punch from my stash
I used another pattern paper for the photo mat  4 1/4 x 6 1/4. 
I used the same paper and cut 2 pieces for the frames.
I used the stencil and molding paste on random parts on the page.
when it was  dry I applied  frame. doily and flower clusters.
I also cut out Title and pop dotted it to frame.

Close up of stencil work and layers.

Thanks for looking and I hope you have a wonderfully creative week.
