Off the Page with Penny Emporium!
Hi BoBunny Fans :) Today is OTP day - its a bit of favourite of mine ;) - and I wanted to share with you a photo frame I've altered using Penny Emporium. If you like fussy cutting you will LOVE Penny Emporium!!
Friends Frame by Megan Gourlay
I had this photo of my BFF and I taken at my wedding. It was just a random shot taken by her husband I think but it needed a frame!
To me Penny Emporium spoke of friends, travel and adventures and heaven knows we've had a few in the 25 years we've been friends :), so I wanted to show that with the embellishments I picked.
I've used the 'Alphabet' and turned it around so that the flourish design was on the opposite side, leaving the left side free for a cluster of embellishments. The "Life is Better with Friends" banner was fussy cut from 'Captured' and the rather regal looking bird was fussy cut from 'Bazaar'. A collection of buttons, jewels, brads and blossoms completed the cluster.
Making the opposite side of the frame have the flourish design prominent meant I could still embellish the opposite corner, but it also meant I could make it more clean and simple, and it wouldn't then detract from the photo. Both these time pieces were fussy cut from 'Bazaar' and 'Captured'.
I didn't want to just pop a photo into the frame, I wanted to create depth as well. From the 'Portraiture' paper I have selected the frame, fussy cut around it and popped it up with foam squares, then popped my photo behind the foam, so it gives the appearance of window box frame.
Thanks for popping by! I hope I've given you some inspiration to start playing with this beautiful collection :) please share if you do on our Facebook page if you do!!
