Design Team Project Featuring My Minds Eye ....

Good morning everyone Gillian here with the first DT project for December featuring My Minds Eye.

I have to say I have had so much fun with this kit. This months kit features the Kraft Funday Collection. "Everyday Fun Stamps" (KFD139), "Happy Day Stamps" (KFD143), "Everyday Fun Decorative Brads" (KFD117) & 12 x12 Kraft Funday Papers which are all available from Snazzys.

I started out by covering a small wooden shadow box with Antique Linen Distress Stains. I then used Distress Inks in Tea Dye to age the outside edges and the inside of the box. I stamped the Dot Stamp in Stazon Timber Brown down one side of the box. I then cut a piece of the 12x12 paper (Ziggity Paper) to fit the inside of the box which was edged with Distress Inks (Walnut Stain). I then cut a frame from one of the 12x12 papers (Front Page News), stamped the lower half with the dot stamp from the Everyday Fun Collection. The picture is from Tim Holtz's Lost & Found Paper Pad. I used 3d Foam Pads to mount the picture to the inside of the frame. I then added the arrow decorative brad.

Using the Everyday Fun decorative Brads set I added the Pin Wheels to either bottom corners, these brads are self adhesive. I attached the banner along the top using 3d Foam Pads to add some more dimension and some of the faux buttons down the left side.

Well that's it for today but I have more projects to show later in the week. TFL x
