Acrylic Frames

Happy Monday and I hope everyone got in some crafting time. I did, but they were presents for my aunt and mother for Mother's Day. Now I need to make some more of these for myself!

Some friends and I went to the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Manchester, New Hampshire a few weeks ago. One of my friends and I took an acrylic class and learned how to work with alcohol inks. How fun are those things? They are not such a scary medium anymore. :)

I made two different frames with two different pictures. I know this is said a lot, but the pictures do not do this justice. This came out so purdy, if I do say so myself. :) I am so glad I took that class and learned how to work with the inks. I can definitely see me doing more of these.

I have posted pictures of each of the frames, one inside and one outside. The outside picture came out better, but you cannot really see the ink colors.

Acrylic Frame: 6 x 7.5 acrylic frame from Clear Scraps
Alcohol Inks: Eggplant and forgot the name of the green from Tim Holtz
Paper: Old pack of Deja Views I had
Flowers: New die from Emma
Leaves: Cricut cut, but cannot remember which cart right now. Sorry!
Ribbon: SU
