a big frame for a small Baby Girl - ...in Pink (what else?)


Schande auf mein Haupt - ich habe über eine Woche nicht eine einzige Karte gemacht! Aber ich weiß, wessen Schuld das ist:

Stephenie Meyer! 
Ich habe das vierte Buch der Bis(s)-Reihe letztes Wochenende angefangen und jeden Abend, an dem ich ein wenig Freizeit hatte gelesen! Es scheint so, als ob das Buch an meinen Händen klebt. Ich habe schon überprüft, ob versehentlich Tacky Tape am Einband ist... ;-)

Habe bereits 539 Seiten geschafft! Also nur noch etwa 200 Seiten... ;-)

 
Shame on me - I haven't made a single card for over one week! But I know whose fault this is: 

Stephenie Meyer!

I started the fourth Twilight book last weekend and have read every evening when I had some spare time since then. Seems like the book is sticking to my hands. I allready checked if any tacky tape accidentally sticks on the backside... ;-)
Have already made it to page 539! So only about 200 pages to go... ;-)


Dennoch habe ich etwas zum Posten: Ein Keilrahmen als Geschenk zur Geburt. Dieser hier ist für ein süßes kleines Baby namens Melina - na ja - eigentlich war es ein Geschenk für ihre Mama...
Die ausgestanzen Spellbinder Formen sind aus weißen Glossy Paper. Darauf kommen dann die Fotos des Babies.

Die Blumen sind mit Acrylfarbe, die ich mit Glossy Gel vermischt habe, angemalt. Sie glänzen dann sehr schön. Der Schmetterling und die Schildkröte sind aus Aquarellkarton ausgestanzt, auch mit acrylfarbe bemalt und nach dem Trocknen mit Glossy Accents bestrichen.

Ich halte die Rahmen relativ schlicht, da ja die Baby-Fotos der Mittelpunkt sein sollen.


However, I have something to post: a wooden frame as a gift for birth. This one is for a sweet little baby named Melina - well - in fact it's a present for her mom ... ;-)

The Spellbinder shapes are made of white glossy paper. These are the frames for the baby-photos.

The flowers are colored with acrylic paint that I mixed with glossy gel. So they sparkle really sweet. The butterfly and the turtle are punched from watercolor paper, colored with acrylic paint and coated with Glossy Accents after drying.

I keep the decoration simple, because the main focus should be the baby-photos.


Ich wünschte ich hätte ein besseres Foto, aber leider ist dies das einzige...
I wish I had a better photo, but unfortunately this is the only one...

Tools: Cuttlebug Butterfly, Turtle and Alphabet Hippie Chick, 
scalloped Spellbinders
Embellishments: white Flowers (Prima)
