A frame for a friend

This frame was for a dear friend who turned 40. This was her gift. She had a big bash to Celebrate. She has a Yoga business above her garage and this is her business name. Dear Val once again, "Happy Birthday".

The story behind the felt swirls: Originally I bought a beautiful black felt scroll design. that would go accross the frame and when I went to use it, I took off the tape backing it stuck together and was ruined. I was so bummed but I decided to go back to the store and get another but not take off the tape backing this time. Needless to say, they were all out. Bummed again but just as I was leaving the woman at the counter mentioned trying the die cutting some black felt. I was able to buy the felt from them and use their die cut machine. Happy once again:) TFL~

My Recipe:

Stamps: The T is a retired stamp from Stampin up, Letterpress Alphabet is from Stampin up and it's also retired, The computer helped for the phrases I added (park your mind ~ drive your body ~ tune your spirit), Val found the OM, 3' and the buddha stamp at a store in NY.

Inks: Black Stazon, computer ink, really rust and so saffron from SU. creamy carmel marker to color in Buta

Paper: daisyds and I can't remember the name of the other DP with the yellow in it. I'll find out and add it, Basic Black SU, Very Vanilla SU, Really Rust SU.

Accessories: Felt die cut Swirls, Brads are Deja views from Michaels crafts, Big black frame is from Wal-mart, dimensionals.

Technique: Paper piecing and Die cutting

  2. ...and it really is perfect.

    I am blessed.
