Unscripted Sketches #16

Hello and happy Saturday to you all. It is time for another Unscripted Sketch. This week the DT  incorporated a photo into their work.  I decided to do a picture frame this time. This was a wooden oval I picked up at Wal-Mart for $1 . I painted it with primer and then with acrylic paint. Then I printed my photo in sepia on colonial white CS. I loved the effect…that’s why my photo looks so muted in the pic.  The flowers were in a clearance bin at Michael's. Although this looks very washed out in the photo it has more color IRL. I played and played with it and couldn’t get it to look right. The photo is of my eldest daughter and in the photo she actually had orchids in her hair.

Supplies: Pearls, Bling, and flowers all from Michael’s, Colonial white and Parchment CS CTMH, Storybook cartridge Cricut, 3m foam mounting tape, wooden picture frame Wal-mart.

When you guys read this I will be on my way to pick up my DD from GS camp. Here’s hoping she had a blast. I missed her so much..It surprised me how much! I want to take a moment and thank each and every one of you who takes the time to stop by my blog and leave a comment…and even if you don’t…thanks for looking! I have met some wonderful virtual friends here in the blogosphere and I feel very blessed.

I pray that you all have a safe and wonderful weekend. Make sure you take a moment and check out all of the other wonderful Unscripted DT members work. Such an amazing group of ladies.

Enjoy!

Oh so sweet! Your DD is darling, and I love the sepia tone. I haven't tried printing on Colonial White so thanks for the tip.

Hope she had a great time @ camp!

Great frame for a beautiful photo! Love everything about it - especially fun to see what someone can do with a $1 plaque. Amazing.

Have a great reunion with your daughter. I'm sure she'll have lots of stories for you.

This is SO pretty Sarah. I love the muted look of it. I also think that I picked up some of those same clearance flowers from Michaels.

Have a great weekend.

Sarah, this is beautiful. I see what you mean about printing photos on cardstock. really neat! Hope your DD had a great time at GS camp. One of my girls went to GS Camp and on the second day when we went to visit found they were sleeping with brown recluse spiders in their tents. Lots of unhappy parents and scouts. That is what she remembers most about camp.

Stunning photo. I would have never thought about printing a pic on cardstock...probably because my printer isn't great photo quality. I just adore this frame and you used the perfect embellies!
Blessings,

Wow, what a neat idea with the frame. I know what you mean about how sometimes the colors just won't show up right but it is still very pretty.

Hope all goes well picking up your daughter. I'm sure she had a great time but will probably be thrilled to see you and glad to head home!
