I made a bunch of gifts to give to my secret sister at my scrap retreat this past weekend and now that she has them, I can finally share on the blog! I had fun altering some wood frames and wood blocks. First time for the wood blocks and the rounded edges were giving me fits. But I figured it out and I like how they turned out.
For this frame, I bought some crackle medium from my local craft store and used it between the orange and black paints layers. Turned out pretty cool.
This one I covered with blue jeans paper and added some little boy embellies.
These are the wood blocks. My hubbie cut them for me from a redwood 4x4 we had in the garage. Some of the edges are rounded and I had a hard time getting the edges to meet up. But I figured it out and they turned out okay!
One more, I bought this frame a Home Goods and turned it into a home accent by adding just a bit of paper and a few buttons! The opening in this frame is 8x10, so it's a good size.
I think she liked everything and we had a fantastic time on the retreat. I did accomplish some scrappy things and had lots of other fun, too!!! Now...I need to make more cards for the craft fair!
