Feature Friday: Framing a Scene

Happy Friday peeps!

Summer may be waning, but the fun here at The Aviary sure is not.  Have you seen Norma G.'s beautiful mixed media notebook tutorial Monday or Julie's pretty card Wednesday with great ideas on how to make multiples of one card?

Today, I thought I would challenge myself by building several scenes using our Framer (Day Framer, Details Framer, Life Framer and Snapshot Framer--I chose to use the Life Framer and Snapshot Framer) and Window sets.

After you stamp out your frame on cardstock there are several ways to build the scene within a frame:

  1. Masking.  You can create a mask of your frame using a masking product or a piece of computer paper with repositionable tape. 
  2. Cut Out Scene.  You would stamp your scene inside your frame not worrying about stamping over the frame and simply cut out the inside of the frame and place it on another (clean) stamped image of your frame.
  3. Cover Frame.  Similar to the previous option, you would stamp your scene inside your frame not worrying about stamping over frame and the cover the outside frame with another (clean) stamped and cut out image of your frame.
Whichever way you prefer, make several scenes using stamps like London, Paris, Royal Melange, Luc, Louise, Marcel and Sophie.

Now you can add your scenes to all sorts of things.  Place them on a stamped tag:

Stamps used: WindowLondon and Writing Backgrounds on scene; Double Dot Border and London on background.

1. Stamp scene, color in with Copic markers and cut out inner rectangle.  Adhere inner rectangle to another window image stamped upon patterned paper.  Cut out.

2. Stamp solid Double Dot Border in blue to cover a tag.  Stamp outline Double Dot Border over a few of the solid Double Dot Border in black.

3. Paint a block of gesso where framed scene will be placed.  Outline with dash marks made with black pen.  Adhere framed scene to tag.  Stamp sentiment three times.

Create a simple card (or card set):

Stamps used: Life FramerParisSophie and Text Melange on scene/heart; Lace Border on card base

1. Stamp scene and color in with Copic markers.  Stamp and cut out frame from patterned paper.  Adhere patterned paper frame over scene and cut out.

2. Stamp heart and color in with Copic markers.  In grey ink stamp Text Melange over heart.  Stamp sentiment from Sophie.  Cut out and add to frame.

3.  Stamp solid Lace Border in blue on card base.  Stamp over solid Lace Border with outline Lace Border in black.

4. Adhere frame to card base.

Find a way to use some scraps by adding your framed scene as a focal image:

Stamps used: Snapshot FramerRoyal Melange and Text Melange on scene; Hanging Stars and Marcel on Snapshot FramerBackgrounds on background

1. Mask outer frame.  Stamp scene and color in with Copic markers (I did a little masking of the king on this one). Remove mask.  Stamp sentiment from Marcel.  Stamp star from Hanging Stars with yellow and orange inks.

2.  I found two pieces of scraps (or leftovers) to create an interesting background that I adhered onto the card base.  The dark blue embossed background comes from my Mermaid project).  The other was a piece of patterned paper that I had punched a lot of stars for my Once Upon a Time project--for this I merely cut a strip from that.

3. Adhere framed scene to card with dimensional adhesive.

We would love to see your take on framed scenes.  Please post them to our flickr group or on Pinterest.

Have a weekend full of fun!
