This October i plan to sprinkle in some posts, "Boo to you," with Halloween. Today's piece actually comes from my book, Art of Layers. I have been waiting a long time to share this with you as i absolutely adore this piece. It is a great way to your tag creations. This backdrop is easy to create.
All you need is:
- open frame
- foam core board
- utility knife
- liquid adhesive
- push pins
Choose your frame. I went with a timeless white one that has just a touch of shabbiness to it. Cut your foam core board to fit just inside the frame. Cover the foam core board with the fabric of your choice. I picked a nice neutral linen fabric. Glue (or even staple) the fabric to the foam core piece and then glue it into the frame. Now you can use push pins to attach your tags to your frame. It looks great displayed on a mantle or piece of furniture. You can add picture wire to the back and display it on a wall. Change out the tags whenever you want or with the seasons.
Here's a closer look at the tags. Lots of paint & mists on the backgrounds. I had fun playing around with different stencils and techniques.
It was a great way to use up my collection of Halloween paper, embellishments, and die cuts.
I also like taking "non holiday" items and turning them into spooktacular embellishments.
