These are a few of my favourite things
Quite a while back I bought a frame from Tesco that had a little bit of a gap between the mount and the glass. I thought it would be good for a paper crafted project but I found the size a bit daunting (it's 40cm square) so it has just sat in my room waiting for me to decide what to do with it. Well inspiration struck this weekend and it's been quite a labour of love. I really don't feel that my photos do it justice. It includes all my favourite paper crafting techniques - white on white (well ivory on ivory), lots of texture from my embossing folders and handmade flowers. I probably shouldn't say this about my own work but I really, really love it. I've got ideas in my head for other versions too, maybe inked and distressed, maybe coloured flowers, maybe patterned paper. Watch this space.
I've taken most of the photos without the frame because I don't know how to photograph glass without getting lots of reflection - you can see me with the camera in the last photo. Anyway let me know what you think and also if you have any photography tips.
If you want to have a go at making the flowers you can find out how here.
