Hi everyone! It’s Angie here, bringing you a hybrid project idea you might like to try out using Meredith’s digital scrapbook kits. I’m currently 35 weeks pregnant with my second child and my sister is a week ahead of me in her second pregnancy, so I’ve had lots of excuses to create hybrid projects for the new nurseries! What’s even better is that we’re having one of each gender, so I get the best of both worlds.
I’m going to show you one project in particular that I made using Things My Mom Taught Me, a really beautiful kit created by Meredith which is filled with positive affirmations and bright, happy colors – perfect to decorate a little girl’s room!
I came up with this:
And I’m going to show you how I made it! All you need to create this project is a wooden photo frame (painted and dried to match your project), printed materials, mounting stickers, some paints, glue and your usual hybrid tools.
I’ll note now that I really wanted the affirmations to pop and stand out when on the wall, so I used the mounting stickers to help achieve this effect. If you want to do this too, when you’re creating your art on the computer, make sure you print out the word strips separately.
Now take apart the photo frame and put any glass aside – you wont be needing it, unless you decide not to mount your word bits. Take your printed art and glue it down to the cork-board backing from the frame. Make sure you leave enough room around the edges for where the photo frame will sit (measuring and marking the amount of space you will need is a really good idea that I forgot to do!).
Just in case any white space was showing around the edges when I put it all together, and also to sort of blend the picture in to the frame, I took a similar coloured paint and gently dabbed the outside of the image with a paintbrush.
Once that was dried, I put the frame back together, minus the glass. If you’re not using mounted stickers, you could still put the glass back on if you prefer.
Now all we have to do is attach the word strips. I put little pieces of mounting sticker on the outside edge of each strip, plus some in the middle to support it. Once the word bits are in place, you’re all done!Share
