Capture and Treasure These Moments

This month’s Mediums Kit from Très Jolie contained a chipboard frame album, a package of chipboard words, a package of flowers and a ton of mediums to play with.

The flowers put me in mind of a few photos that my daughter-in-law took ten years ago when Miss S. was just a few months old. She had been experimenting with some of the features on her new camera and came up with a wonderful photo effect.
I selected three of the photos and decided to turn the frame album into a wall hanging.

Using the stencil that came in the kit, I applied the Mousse Paste all around the “frames” to create a brick pattern.
Once this was set, I applied the Twinkling H2O watercolor all around, drying with my heat tool as I went along.

I already used some of the chipboard words on several layouts this month; I deliberately put these aside for this project. I treated the words with the Glimmer Paste. I thought the results were a bit too bright to match the rest of my project, so I toned them down with more of the Twinks.

I wanted to print out my photos a little bigger than the frames would allow, so I layered some packaging under the images and glued them down.

And now for the embellishing… First, the words were glued down above the photos. Next, I dusted off my glue gun and used hot glue to fasten the flowers down.
