Last year I created my first Holiday Framed Art. I saw one that caught my eye and knew I had to make one for myself. Below, I am sharing my latest one, a Fall Framed Art that was a BIG hit with my customers. I hope it will inspire you to try one for yourself!
Fall Framed Art:
With each framed art a theme is a priority! In this case, fall was the top choice since it was October. The Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog had been released in September and I knew several of the items would be perfect for the squares. The first thing I decided on was the designer series pack I was going to use. The Painted Autumn Designer Series Pack with its amazing selection of patterns and color combinations made it easy to coordinate fall items to each square.
Creating Your Framed Art:
Fall was a rather an easy theme to build my framed art around. Between the Annual and Holiday Catalogs, Stampin’ Up! never disappoints with its assortment of products! I choose different fall elements for each square and before I knew it, each square was designed! Placement was a bit tricky because of how I like to arrange the squares. The center square is always used for my sentiment. I try to keep only one solid cardstock layer per row (may not always be the case) and of course, a ribbon is featured numerous times to finish off several of the squares. Do you have a favorite square?
The Painted Harvest Bundle is one of the Top Selling Bundles out of the Holiday Catalog. As you can see, the sunflower is NOT perfect which is a draw to many. I chose to fussy cut the flower and add one of the sentiments to my Stitched Shapes square, I love how this one came out
- Punch or cut 1 1/4″ squares and position in the four corners.
- Place a Mini Glue Dot to the back each square. Why? In case I need to adjust placement, I will not ruin my project.
- Place the 4 corner squares
- Place the 4 center squares
- Place the focal point – my sentiment square (middle square of entire project)
- Adhere Mini Glue Dots in each corner to keep placement. (You can use tear & tape adhesive too!)
