I have altered a book for this weeks Just For Fun Challenge. This weeks challenge theme has been chosen by the lovely Von. The challenge is to create something using books, brochures and magazines as the main feature. For full details of the challenge, the DT’s inspirational pieces and all the fab entries click on the JFF logo on the sidebar.
I had Poppy Day in mind for this photo frame.
Here is a photo of the side view.
I tried sanding down the the embossed title on the spine but decided it was better to cover it in some braid. The little jewelled embellishment is part of a necklace. The small poppy is made from some scrap lining material which I blasted with a heat gun. The vintage photo of the soldier came from JS
If I was making another one of these to stand up on it’s own, I think I would put some sort of weight in side. Something like fishing weights, or a small pieces of re-bar just to make it sturdy.
The inspiration for this picture frame came from a book by Kelly Rae Roberts “Taking Flight”. I have also seen similar ideas in other craft books and in a home decor magazine.
Before I go I just wanted to share these with you. I bought these books in a Charity Shop on Wednesday. There were quite a few of them but I chose four of them.
That’s it from me for today. I am off for a cuppa.
Best Wishes Florence
