Stampin' Up! Art - the Bedroom

Here we are at the final stop of my household art tour:

This was another tricky one to photograph. Our bedroom is not the brightest room in the house, especially on the gloomy, miserable days we've been having. Add in the reflections on the glass of the frames, and this is the best that I could get (after many even more unsuccessful attempts). The colour is a little off too - our walls are actually more Baja Breeze than Marina Mist in real life!
These frames are 12x12 scrapbooking frames, so they fit a piece of 12x12 cardstock perfectly (I used Sahara Sand textured cardstock). I sponged a square of "First Edition" DSP, and inside I have layered Very Vanilla flowers. I pulled out every flower punch and die that I own for this, and all 3 frames have different flower variations. I also curled up all the petals to give them some dimension. In the middle of each one is an Antique Brad.
Each frame hangs from our picture rail on a piece of garden twine. I like to think our dreams will be sweeter because we're sleeping under some handmade art :o)

    Like your artwork. Just caught up on the last few posts showing what you'd made. What a great activity for gloomy indoors-y weather!

  2. Love all your art Marelle - have been meaning to do something like this- you've inspired me to actually get on & do it!
