I began by painting Chasity's frame a deep purple, and I used other tones of purple throughout the frame. I found a beautiful purple and white patterned scrapbook paper, so that set the theme for the frame. Mandy said use your creativity, so that is what I tried to do. The other paper on the frame is clear with an elegant cream pattern on it. I loved this paper because it allowed the purple paint on the frame to show through. I chose white lettering for Chasity's name.
You all know I love ribbon! I used gold and purple ribbon at the top, and added a light purple flower for some contrast. I found the purple butterflies at Hobby Lobby, and I knew I had to figure out a way to put them on this frame. The gold embellishment on the left side of the frame I found and figured it would add a touch of elegance. Momma Mandy said that the furniture in Chasity's room is cream and gold antique, so I really hope that this frame fits into her sweet little room perfectly!
With Trinity's frame I began by painting the frame black. I used two different patterned cardstocks. The first black and white polka dot, and the other pink and white. I used pink ribbon at the top on the black and white cardstock. Then I put more black, pink, and white ribbon underneath a black and white polka dot flower. I added the pink flower on top of the black and white flower, and then overlapped the whole thing on top of a black embellishment. The crown I had found and new that it would be very fitting for Ms. Mandy's little princess.
I added pink ribbon at the bottom also, I thought it would tie in with the top part of the frame. The studs on the side were just to give that side of the frame a little touch of pretty.
This was my first time to make frames for older children. I will say that I loved the challenge, and I hope that Mandy and her girls loved the results.
