Our Creative Corner DT Application: Bessie Frame

Goodness gracious I love this frame.

Last weekend I was mucking around down town Potsdam and thought I'd take a quick run into the store where I consign some of my creations.

Of course while they were handing me money, I was taking a quick peek around and found this sheet music with this lovely cover.

HAD a small little moment right there in the store.

Last night, it was on the chopping block for this frame and lickety split, it was my new background.

OK, yes, will give you a before shot of this frame. I have had it FOREVER and decided to take it apart now it was all sun faded.

A few more close ups are in order, so hang tight. 

LOVE LOVE LOVE that butterfly. It is an old Stampin' Up Set I have had forever and I stamped it on a piece of photo paper with Stayzon brown ink. Then used some photo markers I had to color it, then spritzed it with some glimmermist to get the colors to run a bit. How it turned out made me really happy.

And here is a close up of a little framed image I included. It is from Nice Crane Designs and is called the Fascinating Bessie Gutman. LOVE all the little images in this collection. The beach image I'll be using on my next project. THANKS IGNACIO, YOU ROCK!

I am applying at My Creative Corner as I heard they are oober cool AND last week or was it the week before last, I had a win over there.


I was shocked. Here is the project and the link back to their site.

Anyhow, wish me luck! ;-)
