Design Team Project 3 .... Featuring My Minds Eye

Hello everyone, I'm back with my 3rd and final project of this year featuring My Minds Eye.

I made this home decor piece using a Large Rectangle Art Part Frame (Large Flourish Frames Set) from Wendy Vecchi's Studio 490 range. I covered the frame using MME papers (Remember This). I then used another rectangle frame to add dimension which again was covered in MME papers (Good Measure) and adhered to the centre of the frame using 3d foam pads. I then cut Tim Holtz's Caged Bird die using GrungePaper which was painted with Adirondack Paint Dabber (Expresso) and spritzed with Perfect Pearl Mists (Biscotti). The picture is from the Ideaology Lost & Found Paper Pad which has been mounted using 3d foam pads. I have used brads from the "Everyday" Decorative Brads Set. The Chain Tassles are also from the Ideaology range. I also used Distress Inks (Walnut Stain) to distress the frame.

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the DT to say a huge big thank you to Paula for her contribution and inspiring projects for Snazzys.

Snazzys DT would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.
Don't forget to check back in January for lots more projects and a sneak peak at our newest DT member.

Great hanging project Gillian. I love the boldness of some of these papers and they look fabulous on these frames. The texture on the birdcage looks great. I like the quirkiness of the couple inside the cage, lol!

Lovely finale to the end of 2011.

Great finale to the best month yet from the DT, what a fantastic variety of projects, how lucky is Snazzys. xx

(p.s. Mrs Snazzy says it is the best month every month, such indecision but I think we all know what she means. Mr Snazzy)
