Coastal Theme Framed Art Project

I was inspired by Australian Demonstrator, Gail Ellis to create this framed art project.  The frame, which I purchased at Michael’s, is considered a 10″ x 10″ frame (outside measurement is 12″ x 12″).  The opening on the frame is 9-1/2″ x 9-1/2″ so my Crumb Cake background was cut at 8-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.

Stamp Sets– High Tide, Waterfront, Colorful Seasons
Ink – Crumb Cake, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Early Espresso, Sahara Sand
Cardstock – Crumb Cake, Coastal Cabana, Sahara Sand, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White
Accessories – Lakeside Framelits, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Snail Adhesive, Fine-Tip Glue Pen

I’m planning to hang this in our “snowbird” home in Florida next season.  I have ideas for making smaller ones to sell at a craft shows.  I just need to track down the right size frame before I start the project.
