Framed Art

Can I just say that I loooooove my framed art which is shown below.  It was so much fun to make!!  The inspiration for this piece came from a fellow demonstrator, Sheila Thibault.  I found her project on Stampin' Connection and instantly knew I had to make my own version.

In the close-ups below you can see all of the texture I put into a lot of the squares.   As you can see, I used several different embossing folders and several different punches.

And while I also used several different colors, the main colors I used are cajun craze, night of navy, and old olive with so saffron, chocolate chip, bashful blue, and real red thrown in for good measure.
The stamp sets that I used are Sweets for the Sweet, Elements of Style, Up Up and Away, Artistic Etchings, Refuge and Strength, and Sincere Salutations (retired.)

Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment,

  1. That is really pretty Patty. Very creative.

  2. This is great! I love the combined embossing folders, stamps and most of all the colors! Your framed art makes me smile.:)

  3. I LOVE this!!!! A great way to use up scraps and making a customized piece of art! I may have to "borrow" this idea! Any sized frame can be used so you have endless possibilities.

  4. I just love your framed art!! It looks amazing! I believe I'll have to give this a try myself. Yours turned out beautiful with all of the different textures, colors, etc.
