I've been FRAMED!

Today's post is all about framing....
Framing your layout, your photo, part of your photo, etc.

Use framing as a way to direct the viewer’s perspective of your scrapbook page.
To gets their eye and mind involved in your page and taking in its story.

 "I thought I'd show a couple of ways of using Bo Bunny products for framing. I used some of the Jewel Flourishes to create a flourishy frame, placing the photo first on some vintage cardstock and then layering the flourishes around the photo. I then trimmed around the flourishes

I also used one of the new background stamps to create a finer frame in the background to draw in the eye and help frame in the title. Here are some close-ups.."

 "Our cat Beertje loves to behave as if she is a diva. I think this photo shows off her attitude pretty well. Therefore, I thought it would be nice to frame this photo and give it a royal touch. I used a chipboard frame to accent the photo and then added some banners and layered chipboard to make it look more rich."

 "I tried to create the illusion of several papers framing the layout itself. The background die cut shape was to represent an ornate frame and then the inner papers were to represent the matting... I also tried to frame the photo by using several pieces of noteworthy layered upon one another."
