Little Things...

This week the theme of Scrapware is little things.... I love creating little project for my girls so it was a perfect theme for me to kick off the week!For my little things project I decided to play with the doily frames - I began by painting some doily frames - the large, and four small ones (CH461, CH457, CH463) and setting them aside to dry.

Once dry, I stamped each painted frame with a range of decorative stamps using white ink, I then went over each one with the heat gun to dry the ink.
Now came the fun part - decorating each piece - I wanted the frames to become a hanging piece with a photo of all my gorgeous girls on the big doily and then one of each of them on the smaller ones.

For the large doily, I outlined and cut out a sun from patterned paper and backed a small wallet print of my girls with co-ordinating paper. I added a small heart (CH319) and some crocheted flowers before backing a quote sticker with foam tape and adhering it along to bottom of the frame. I finished the large doily by cutting a large circle from pattern paper and adhering it to the back of the frame to strengthen it.
For the smaller frames I backed them with funky cupcake wrappers I found at Typo. Before punching scalloped circles from pattern paper and from my wallet prints. I finished off each smaller frame with the girls initials (AZ03) and a tiny shape.
To hang my little frames, I threaded embroidery thread through the top of each one at different intervals attaching them to the top frame.

And then I hung it from a picture hook in my kitchen for the girls to find ; )
