Hi - well as I promised yesterday, today I want to show you the canvas frame that I made for our neighbor friends birthday this weekend. She had a foal born a couple of weeks ago, his name is Duncan. Isn't he just adorable?
I wanted to make her something special to show him off, can't believe those legs... LOL My mini donkeys don't have 1/2 those legs under them! Literally! This was his day one photo... she was so excited when that hind end popped out with all those spots.
For those that have never seen a post with one of my canvas frames, you can find the instructions here. I have had a few post with these frames. I love making them - great gifts.
This frame is a 8X10 canvas, a great size for a 4x6 photo to sit in side the back of the canvas. It is really important that when purchasing your canvas to get one that has a wide wood border so you have plenty to cover and decorate.
My papers are from long ago.. LOL K&Company Wild Saffron paper stack. The border punch used is from EK success, as is the Retro Flower punches. I used twine around the corners to add a bit more country to the piece. I wanted to put his name on it, and wasn't sure what to go with,when I remembered another product from long ago.. my thickers! Man I have tons of these things from my scrapbooking days, and this western chipboard font is perfect for this little guy. I hated to use the flowers in the corners, as that isn't really "manly", but I like how it looks and couldn't come up with anything better. So Flowers it is!
I hope she liked it. I was happy with how it turned out, but with a photo like that it already had a good start :0)
Can't wait for tomorrows post.. some happy news and new post!
Have a great Monday!
