Free Style Blog Hop - July 17th

Good morning from Alabama.  I have a project here that I love.  I will be installing some picture hangers on the back of the frames and hang on the wall in my room.

This is Holly Hobbie Set 1 and Holly Hobbie Set 2 from Scrappers Delights Store and I love Holly Hobbie and will get Set 3 and 4 to add to the collection to hang on the wall.

I watercolored the images with my Stampin Up ink makers, using a brush to color in the images.  I used acrylic water paper to print the image ont.  The frames are from canvas covered frames that I had on had..just removed the canvas, and stained the frames with Oak stain.  I wanted a light color.  Once I put together, I felt that the frames needed some 'help' so I used my hot glue gun and glued these hand-made flowers to each corner of the frames.

When I created this project again, I will make my own frames using poster board and pad them and decorate.

Here is the Blog hop order:
