Another Frame


I have a very busy day and don't have time to create something new,  so I am going to post a gift I made for one of the people who is helping me, so much, to recover from injuries from our car accident. She has spent so much time helping me feel better and even calls me at home to make sure I am doing ok.   This was just a small token of my appreciation.

I used a wooden frame and some stencils to create the background with "Modeling Paste".   Distress Inks were used to add color to the stenciled designs.  I bet you know where the large Iris is from.  I used the gorgeous Heartfelt Creations "Dutch Iris Oval" and "Dutch Iris Medley" Precut sets.  The pieces were black embossed and colored with colored pencils and OMS.  All the layers were put together with dimensional glue dots.  A Memory Box Butterfly and Cheery Lynn grass border were added to complete this frame.

Thank you Janelle for all you are doing to help me recover.

Hi there, i read your
blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i
was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments?
If so how do
you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can
suggest? I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any
help is very much appreciated.
