Today I have a framed artwork project using the beautiful Hannah kit to share with you!
Would you believe me if I told you that even as a memory keeper and someone that takes photos daily that I have only a few framed photos hanging up around our house? It's true! I'm awesome about getting photos into my albums, but terrible when it comes to hanging them around the house. Can anyone relate?
So, when I saw this month's gorgeous Hannah kit I was determined to marry the beautiful products with a photo from a recent family photo session to frame and put up in my daughter's nursery.
The frame that I chose was for an 8x10 photo, which is a smaller size than I'm typically used to when creating a layout. However, a larger frame would have been too big for where I was going to put it in the nursery, so I had to make it work!
When working in a smaller size I try to keep things simple. I used the woodgrain paper from the Hannah kit as my background since it brought out the natural wood in the frame. I wanted to bring in some other patterns as well so I cut some strips of paper to add to the left side of my spread.
From there I worked on embellishing my page. I'm not a huge fan of fussy cutting, but I feel like it's always worth it to cut out some Felicity Jane florals. I cut a bunch from the Hannah floral patterned paper, and paired them with some of the die cuts to create a base to go at the bottom of the photo. Using some pop dots I was able to add dimension to my photo and some of the florals.
I kept my title simple, using these Chipboard alphas from the Lola kit, and then added a little cluster of embellishments around it.
I'm so happy with how this turned out. I love seeing this photo in my daughter's nursery, and I love how unique this frame is now that I've added a personal touch.
How are you using your Hannah kit this month? Don't be afraid to think outside the box with your products. You might surprise yourself with what you end up creating. :)
