Something Different


Todays something different Saturday is heavy on pictures and low on explanation.  It is a variant of the triptych I made that is on the tutorial pages using Spellbinders Adorning Squares die from Margaret (see yesterdays post below)

I have not added much description as I intend to remake this in more detail as a Christmas project and also because I was called into work at 6:30 this evening and have only just got home (it is after 11pm Friday night when I am writing this)

I started by cutting 6 die cuts from Adorning Squares with a circle die added in the middle cut with White cardstock. 

Next I added acetate behind all the pieces and stuck two back to back using foam pads.  Finally I slid the pictures cut with a smaller die and edged with broken china distress ink and decorated the frames with matching gems.  These were the stuck to a strip of matching grosgrain ribbon with a bow at the top.

To answer a few peoples questions I use a simple wooden Bowmaker to make all my bows! 

More tomorrow, Enjoy...


  1. Hi John. This is so beautiful and such a lovely idea. Why don't my bows ever look like Yours?
