I know I could have pieced together multiple papers or done any number of things, but I was just stuck. I felt uninspired and couldn't think of a "wow" project. So, I set the frame aside. Over the past almost-year, I've shoved it in a closet, pulled it back out, tripped over it, grumbled at it, measured it again, and returned it to the closet. Until today. You see, yesterday, as I was surfing around looking at crafty blogs, the answer fell in my lap! I saw a post where a lady named Kate had bought one of those odd size frames on purpose (!), used fabric as a mat, and printed out an image on white paper to center on the fabric. Genius! Here's a link to her blog, The Gaines Gang, where you can see the original. In any case, that brings me to today's featured project, which I adapted a bit.
- picture frame: I think any size would work, really, you just have to trim your inserts to accomodate it
- fabric scrap
- white cardstock
- colored cardstock to coordinate with fabric
- computer paper
- computer, printer
- scissors, pencil, adhesive
