Dreaming in Black & White

Happy Thursday!
I bought this frame months ago in hopes that I would 'do' something with it and a project has finally presented itself! While working with my DT supplies for Momenta, I decided I was going to make something 'pretty' for my scrap room (which has alot of b&w damask patterns). Once I picked the paper, the rest of the project was easy peasy!

To start this one off, I simply cut a piece of the paper to fit my frame (5x7" in this case), and framed it in.
After I did this, I cut a 3x4" (approx) piece of black cardstock & layered it with a creamy colored (less 1/8" all around). I then glued this on TOP of my glass frame-after I centered it by 'eye-balling' it.
I then played around with my alpha stickers until I found an arrangement I liked and glued those down. The next part was the fun part, I made 5 little rossettes (some with a scalloped circle punch & some I cut into rough circles-see tutorial HERE). I then roughly handcut some 'leaves', distressed them and adhered them all to the from of my frame using Stix 2 double sided tape.

I was really happy with the outcome and plan to make another of these nifty little projects.
Thanks for stopping by!

Make sure to check back tomorrow for a new sketch and a blog hop!
