JULY FRAMED ART INSERT

July’s Framed Art insert turned out to be so much fun!  It’s a celebration of the 4th of July, Ice Cream Day, Lollipop Day, Don’t Step-On-A-Bee Day, Tour de France, and just summer!  The 4th of July frame used the Black Magic technique – so much fun – it actually looks like fireworks!  I had never used this technique, so it was a fun technique to try using our fabulous watercolor pencils.  I used another one of our wonderful digital images called Sweets for the Sweet and turned it into a 3-D image by punching out the circle pinwheel with a punch and popping it up on a dimensional.  Using My Digital Studio, I sized one of the “sticks” to fit a 2 x 2 inch square and then used one of the pinwheels to become a lollipop and sized the pinwheel to fit a 1 inch circle.  I then printed them out along with just the circle image which we then punched out with our 1 inch circle punch, added some Dazzling Diamonds, and then popped it up with a dimensional to create a 3-D look.  I then used our very small hand-held 1/16 punch and punched two small holes on either side of the “stick” and threaded up some silver thread and knotted it and tied it in a bow so it looked like it was a ribbon actually around the stick.   The canopy square turned out cute-cute and looks like a real canopy!  I hope you enjoy looking at July’s insert!
