Thank you for joining me, Corina, for today's post. I have created a Winter Coffee Frame as a gift for a fellow coffee loving friend. I have left the mattes empty so she can add her favourite pictures.
I started out using a Kaisercraft Beyond the Page - Nine Frame Photo Display and painted it with Java Bean brown acrylic paint and sanded the edges. I added pattern paper to back each of the spaces. I cut pieces from the pattern paper to embellish each space, used a die from the Tim Holtz Holiday Greens collection and a variety of Southern Ridge embellishments.
Here are a few close ups of some of the Southern Ridge embellishment that I used:
The largest cup from the Paper Coffee Cup Combo. I painted with Antique Linen Distress Paint and used Vintage Photo ink and a Sakura Clear Stars pen to highlight. Added a sleeve created using decorative twine, pattern paper, cardstock and a miniature chipboard heart.
Both the Coffee Sign and Coffee House Sign are wooden and from the Coffee Grinder Set. To highlight, I used a Sakura Clear Star and a dark brown pencil crayon.
