Finished Frames

Howdy.  I wanted to share the altered frames that I finished and just forgot to post the images.   {frown}  Sometimes I think I have too many items on my 'plate'.  Or maybe I just need to get organized.  Either way, here are the finished frames. (original post HERE)

wedding or baby boy

baby girl or shabby kitchen

I picked up these frames from a discount store.  They measure roughly 6" x 6".  The photo opening measures 4" x 4".   I just loved the overall look of the frames: the cluster of roses in each corner, the scalloped edge, the beaded trim around the opening.  Just pretty.  
I made two different looks.  The first frame, I used a kraft colored linen as the fabric piece.  I thought the contrast between the white of the frame and the color of the linen was pretty.  
I machine stitched three different cotton trims to the middle of the piece.  I added a ticket, a paper blossom, a key, and button to the cluster of objects for the focal piece.  I tied a piece of pale blue seam binding around the key.  I was thinking 'wedding' for this framed piece.  But, it really doesn't have a specific piece.
The second frame I wanted to make a bit more feminine.  So I used a white and rose print cotton fabric.  I machine stitched two pieces of cotton trim.  I added another ticket and button to my cluster.  But this time I added a spoon, tied with pale pink seam binding.  I was thinking baby girl or shabby kitchen for this framed art.  But really, there isn't a specific theme.  
Thank you for stopping by.  I just wanted to share with you what I have created.  {smile}  These two framed pieces will be for sale at my Craft Fairs.  Remember, shop early for the best selection.  {smile}
