Hello.......I'm Tracey, I live in Australia and I am so excited to be 'LESSology's' guest designer for this month.
My idea for this challenge was to create a picture frame for my wall..........I arranged my photos in a "Block" pattern. I thought of each photo block (canvas) like a quilt block, decorating each one differently! I used my sewing machine to stitch around the edges of all the pattern paper, inking and adding some pretty lace and charms, just like you can do if you were creating with material to form a quilt block.
Here is what I created .........I thought of each photo block (canvas) like a quilt block, decorating each one differently. I used my sewing machine to stitch around the edges of all the pattern paper, inking and adding some pretty lace.
I used an old Cork Board, painted the frame white and these are some of the recycle items. I used double sided tape to adhere paper to the cork.
Each square block is a mini canvas. This doily is from a table cloth I bought at a thrift store....is slowly getting smaller.
This is my Grandmother on her wedding day........the butterfly is from an old necklace.
This little clip was given to her when she was baptised...... Her name is engraved on it.
Some pretty recycled lace.
An old tea stained doily, some charms from an old necklace. I used pearl pins to hold them in place on the cork board.
My Grandmother lived until she was 102.......
I used an old necklace of mine to hang the picture.
I had a lot of fun making this for LESSology........thankyou so much to Yvonne, Angi and the rest of the DT for having me on your blog today.
I look forward to seeing what you create for this months challenge.
Happy Crafting! Tracey
