When Theresa posted her latest handbag (a Gwen Stefani L.A.M.B "Music Rocksteady" Tote) for the Designer Handbag Inspiration Challenge #9, I liked the deep mocha color and the texture.
I knew I wanted to create something different this week, so this handbag was a good inspiration for an altered frame. I've had this frame for several years. Each week I keep saying how this challenge is a good reason to dig out and use some very neglected supplies.
I picked this photo of Kalino to play-off the vertical strips on his soccer jersey.
I started with an 8 1/2" x 11" pieces of Chocolate Chip cardstock. With a bone folder and a ruler, I scored the entire piece of paper is about .5" increments (I wish I had a Scor-Pal). I tried using the scoring blade on my paper cutter, but the cardstock was too large and awkward to use in the cutter with the cardstock turned at 45 degree angles.
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom, Gold Foil paper (Only the Best Los Gatos)
Other: Make-a-Memory frame (A Stamp in the Hand), Making Memories brads, brown ribbon (Taylored Expressions), River Rock ribbon, foam tape, redline tape, Tombo glue, Sakura Gelly Roll pen
