Let's Party!

Everyone loves a party and of course we have to commemorate the happy event with a photograph...  This was taken at a 21st Birthday party - a very special day, deserving to be framed!  

For this particular photo, I used a 5"x7", two part acrylic Deflecto frame and added a little doodling.  I love using clear frames because you can lay the top part of the frame over any design then trace over it with a marker.  You can trace images from a book, an image stamped on a piece of paper, or even artwork from a catalog. 

Paint markers work really well on acrylic, but for this frame I used the new line of Chalk Markers from Marvy Uchida.

The first thing you need to do is to separate the two pieces of the frame then place the top piece on top of the design/images you want to use.  I traced over some letters for the word "PARTY" then added the little drink glasses along each side.  I used the white marker for the outlines, but black would work well too.  I then added color to the glasses on the BACK of the frame and blocks of color behind each letter.  It was very simple and easy to do.....  Once the chalk paint is dry, I sandwiched  the photo between the front and back pieces, re-assembled the frame and it was finished. EZPZ...  

This is just one of the projects for this month's First Monday DCC theme.  You can see what other designers have created by hopping forward thru the webring using the blue, DCC logo in the sidebar.  Enjoy!  Y'all come back now.........

Yours truly,
Julie :)
