Hi folks (:o) I'm still busy at Andy Skinner's Book of Secret Online Workshop....but i have some art to share. As i knew, i would be busy....i prepared this for you (:o)
After watching a couple of videos on YouTube from CreaBoetiek, where she made this kind of frame as a cover for a Mini - Album, i had a go for my version.
I started with a leftover piece of cardboard from my stash. This has a function as a standup frame, but i can take off the sides and adhere it, also.
I used Mod Podge and adhered pages of an old book. I didn't count them, but i think i used 30
I only glued the outsides. There is no Mod Podge in the middle of the pages!
Let them dry for 30 minutes.....and while still sticky....
....use a cutting knife and cut open as shown
Use Mod Podge and glue the open pages in some kind you like. You can do this roughly and also tear some pages out to avoid the frame to be to bulky.
While wet and sticky, use dark paint.
You can let it dry and embellish next day, or as i did...use directly more paint ( gold) for the edges of the pages.
There are three parts on YT, to watch the work in progress ( each 7 min)
And here, you'll see her finished frames for inspiration
Hope you like my version, too (:o)
