2012 Artisan Design Team Entries Blog Hop-Day 8


Welcome back to the 2012 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Today, we continue featuring our winning entries for the 2012 Artisan Design Team Contest with another 3D project. If you are following the hop, then you probably arrived from Jeanna Bohanon's blog. Didn't you just love her project! She does some amazing things with My Digital Studio. We'll be featuring our winning projects for 10 days straight.

Here is my eighth project for the hop, the second of two 3D projects that I submitted.


This was another really fun project to make. If you look around Pinterest and lots of the craft magazines, you will see lots of these frames with wire and things pinned to them. I decided to put three groupings of photos of each Grandma and my Mom. So, the top row is my Maternal Grandma, the second row is my Paternal Grandma and the bottom row is my Mother. I also tried to include pictures from their childhoods as well as when they were young adults. I layered the pictures on neutral paper, and sponged all of the edges to age them. I also diecut some doilies, stamped the doily set, cut the specialy Designer Series Paper with doiles apart and then layered these doiles in groups behind each photo. I made a chalkboard looking background and typed each of their names over it in My Digital Studio, punched them out, layered them on the same neutral paper and sponged those edges. So, each row has one of these titles. And, last but not least, I cut strips of fabric, applied them to the Big Shot adhesive sheets, cut smaller pieces, notched the ends, and then folder them over the wire and stuck them together. Then, I added the photo groupings to the wires with the mini clothespins.

Here are some closeups.
