Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever. ~Author Unknown
Mom passed away 5 years ago, so Mother' s Day is not about brunch and flowers, but a time to take stock of all my mother taught me. So for this project, I wanted to frame a photo I recntly found of myself at awise and energetic two. I wanted the wood matt tob e filled with all that she taught me. yet still retain the teture of the wood. Craft Attitude makes this ridiculousely easy! I simply typed out my text on the computer and printed it out on the Wood Attitutde film as I was going to adhere it to the wood section of the frame. As I was gong to pint in boldface, I was expecting some smearing. There was none! The film somehow magically holds or absorbs the ink!
For this project You will need:
A package of Wood Attitutde
a 5x7 frame (mine is fom Target)
lue sick, wwhich comes coneienly with the film
Let's create (with attitude)!
For a 5x7 frame I printed out the text verically/ portrait style. i added glue to the wood section of the frame. Have fun with the type. I wantd mine to be fairly simple, so just two fonts wih one boldafaced. It all depends on your omputer skills.
I pulled away the film which is supeer easy to do. Thank you Craft Atitude! I centered the film over the rfame and pushed it down, smoothing out all air bubbles. HINT! To get into tight cormers I used a bone folder.
Once the film was smoothed into place, I trimmed the excess with an xacto knitfe.
