ARTISTIC CHALLENGE THIS MONTH: FRAMES


I personally love frames, but usually as a layering piece. So this challenge may either be just right for you, or a headache. Either way, come join us and have fun!!!

Inspiration:

I grabbed a bunch of frames and layered them throughout the piece.

Keep Your Eyes On The Skies By Vivian Lake

This one I made last year, using a die cut frame as my focus.

I asked for suggestions for challenges and Chris Alton wrote this: "Have you done an inspired by an artist challenge? A painting or whatever inspires you to use those colors or similar images in your photos or......and let us know what artist or image you were inspired by."

Chris, this is a great suggestion and I'm going to have to give this some thought. My inspiration does not always come to me the same way it does for others. So if you are prepared to walk around in my head for a month, I'll try to come up with a clever challenge for September.

I just did a layout w/ a 4x4 transparent frame w/ a design across it...
but the perimeter of it is not what I would call "frame-like"
IDK if that makes sense.
Would that count, or would you consider that an "overlay"
Sorry, I've never used one before so I'm not sure of the correct terminology.

No worries if it doesn't count, I have frames in my stash I can dig up, I'm sure!
TIA!

Thanks Vivian

I like the idea of frames also so I will join in this month. I am thinking of combining both ideas in a layout.

Thanks, Vivian.
I'm digging into my "FRAMES" drawers now. They are asking me "Where have you been all this months?", lol!
Let's see what I can come up with.

OK, good plan. I've got plenty of frames gathering dust in the ol' stash that I really should do something with.

Here we go. Not sure where the little frames came from but, based on the age of everything else in this home-made kit, I'm guessing SC.

I'm not sure I can make this part of challenge. Frames are not a twist, it's the actual challenge. I do love your page!!!

P.S. If I missed something please let me know. I'm just not seeing it.

Oh Lordy....I'm sorry. I misread everything! That's what I get for trying to multi-task with the dgds on my lap! Removing it....

Thanks so much!
But you know, the more I think about it, I think it would count as an overlay more than a frame...
so, in fairness... I will work on something else for this challenge.
Thanks again though!

Lifted a layout that I found on pinterest for this one..thought it was neat how the frame sectioned off an area of the background rather than the photos

This was a fun challenge for me this month - I was going through some old photos of a trip to Seattle and found these wonderful pix of iris - and so I thought of van Gogh - I used stencils on the cardstock and used a mini picture frame to frame a small pic of an iris
