As summer approaches it is time to adorn our mantle with a splash of fun colour.  I chose the Brushed paper for this project since it had a few summery colours and a bit of red to blend it with the accent wall colour.

The first project is the wire frame in colonial white.  I created a banner using the art philosophy cricut cartridge. The banner prices were folded in half and glue together with the slate ribbon in between the layers.  I added a few Junebug puffy stickers to add a bit of bling because everything needs bling!



I added a few recent pics of our family to the frame


Next up was the word summer.  I cut the letters using the art philosophy cricut cartridge.  I cut one layer from recycled cardboard (cereal boxes) and one layer from the brushed paper.


I adhered the two layers together using the wide tipped bonding memories glue pen.  Once dry I sponged the edges of the letters in canary ink.


I added a few metal flowers, Stickers and some fibres to complete each letter.

Two great projects. Your frame is fun, and “summer” makes me wish the summer break were here already. Nice job!
