HOME SWEET HOME - ID design team project

HOME SWEET HOME  -  Vintage Quilt Hanger

Here is my next Design Team project for
"Imaginarium Designs"


When I received this “Emma Frame” IDTFR0012, it reminded of my days when I did quilting and stitching. With the small rectangles and squares with the gorgeous flourish on top and inside the frames. I decided to make a mini quilt hanging piece, and have called this project “Home Sweet Home”.
First I painted the Emma frame with brown paint, then embossed ink all over the frame, sprinkled Vintage photo distress embossing powder by Tim Holtz. Heated the frame with my heating gun. The finished effect is like a soft suede mat look to the frame.
Then I cut a piece of chipboard slightly bigger than the frame
covered with it paper, inked the edges then added lace & ribbon on bottom.  I then cut out pieces of paper, placed on the underside on each opening. Inked the Letters, flourishes and tinies. Arranged embellishments. Attached clips to hold the frame on top, tied with beautiful seam binding. Then attached the finished frame on to the covered chipboard square.
