For this months design team project I thought I would use a frame that came in this set.  You can see what I made with the other one here.

I have kept these MDF Seagull Scene shapes for a special project as they are one of my favourites and I wanted to use them as a focal point.  Then suddenly an idea came and I just love it when this happens!  Especially as August makes me think summer and holidays.  

I love the design of these shapes so I deliberately created a clean and uncluttered look. I planned to paint the background but when I saw my friend using her paper pad this sheet looked perfect for what I needed.  I glued this to the background, then it was a simple job of choosing paint colours to go with it, which I did by blending 3 main colours (see materials used below). Once dry I added a stamp detail on the post for effect and then glued the frame and shapes into position.  I was pleased with the overall result and hope you like it too.

The frame goes well in my bathroom so it already has a space, but I think this would also make a good book cover.  An idea for another time perhaps.  Lisa, over at That Craft Place, I need some more frames please!!

You can buy all the above from That Craft Place, and do check out the range of MDF as it is superior to others I have used. And if you see Creative Expressions selling these products chances are they have been made by Lisa!
