She's Crafty - Tulle Frame
I thought I would try and start logging anything crafty on my blog. It keeps with my "Domestic" theme and it makes it more real when I share the project :). I couldn't resist a mini session at the photo studio titled "Ballerina Babes". After I got the cute proofs back and ordered my composite I wondered what I could possibly do to this picture to make it interesting compared to the other bazillion composite pictures of our young children. Since they were in tutu's I stuck with the theme. My mom had some taupe tulle - I know, all of you that know her are saying "Of course she just happened to have some taupe tulle". I then went searching for a pre-made frame with a plain white mat that I could wrap in tulle. Now, the picture isn't great because I couldn't use a flash, but you get the idea. My only problem now is that I'm thinking of other things I can wrap matting with - a dangerous thought. Can you imagine how cute you could frame a picture if you wrap the mat in cool fabric? old letters? beautiful paper? wrapping paper? newspaper from the day your child was born if it's a birth picture? Really, you can think of ten million things to wrap a photo mat in. Anyways - here's a look at what I did.
