I love picking up great finds at garage sales throughout the summer. You never know what little treasures you might find at bargain prices. This past summer I found this frame at a garage sale. The gal selling it said it was a mirror, but the mirror broke. There was no price on it and when I asked, she said I could just have it. Can't get better than free! I also came across a large vinyl saying, probably meant for a wall, so I picked that up for $.75. Add some patterned paper and voila some art for your wall. And better yet, because I didn't use the vinyl on the wall I can move it.
I attached cardstock to the cardboard backing that came with frame and then I applied the strps of patterned paper in a quilt pattern. The paper is from the 6x6 pad from Echo Park's For The Record 2 line. The strips are 3x6 with a 3x3 yellow piece in the middle.
The flowers were die cut using the Sizzix bigz die Flower Layers #3. I used the remaining pieces of patterened paper and combined them in different flower stacks. The brads in for the flower centers were made using the I-top tool by Imaginisce. When the flowers were assembled I pinched the paper up around the brad to add dimension.
I think this will go on the wall in my craft room.
Thanks for looking ~ Michelle
