What on earth has gone on with Blogger today???
It has taken me forever to load photos and get this post up and ready!!! UUhhgggggggg.
I HATE CHANGE!!! I look at things like this....... if it's NOT BROKE leave it alone!! tee hee hee . 
I guess that shows my age huh??
 On that same note I have to say that me no likey... not at all!!! 
Trying to do this post it was all foreign and it just doesn't seem at all friendly!!
I pouted a bit and even stamped my feet..
Have you tried to use it yet??

I am sure that it will be better when I figure out just where everything is again!!
Okay enough of me pouting and screaming I guess.. tee hee heeee..
Now let me start over...

I have my DT project for
to share with you today.

The theme this week is a fun one for sure!! 
 Anything But A Card/Alter Something

I have chosen to alter a wooden frame this week.
I have used #3069 Teddy Bear Love by Magnolia. Diana has her at a big 10% off the regular price right now!!!

 My image has been colored with my copic markers and stickles added to the bows.
First of all I painted my frame with Satin Cream acrylic paint. Let it dry and put Mod Podge on the top of the frame to use as a glue to put my paper down. Paper used is MME. I then used my Brayer to push the paper onto the frame and make sure that it was all down and laying nice and flat. I let that dry and then I took my sanders and sanded all of the edges of the frame. Next step was to used my Ranger Distress Inks on all of the edges to give it that nice warm shabby chic look. Next I wrote a little poem to go inside of the frame. I did this on my computer and on the edges I used my Autumn Leaves stamps. Then added a bit of distressed inks over the top of that. Now for the embellies. I have used lots of paper flowers, tulle, string pearls, and the beautiful glitter swirls are called GLITTER CUTS by Fancy Pants. Now I also think that this little frame would be so fun if you were to remover the little Teddy Bear poem and insert a special photo of a child into it.
 Of course you can find this little cute image at

dolcreations said...

You know Janiel, I was going to mention it on my post how I did not like the new blogger but I thought I would be the only one not liking the new format....whew...I am not alone. I hate change too and I really do not like the new way of posting. So we shall grumble together!!!!
Now I will say, there is no grumbling AT ALL with this framed piece of have done it again! I absolutely LOVE that shade of copic you used on her is so rich and adorable. The poem is super duper cute! Love your post today!

Brigitte said...

OMG, I LOVE your frame!!! Tilda is coloured beautifully and your little poem is wonderful!!! This is a piece of Art! Hugs, Brigitte

Gina L said...

I recently got this cutie in the mail and I'm hoping to get the chance to color her soon. Your frame turned out great. As for blogger, I switched earlier this month and I'm still learning where things are. Seems like there's a lot of symbols now, rather than having titles written out. It's not as intuitive, I guess. I'm learning, though. Some things are easier, but others are just nuts!
