Bargello Technique

I saw this technique today in my Splitcoast Stampers email. I knew right away that Club Scrap's fabulous Raku (March, 2010) would be perfect for this! Here are the results:

Paper, ribbon, eyelet, and stamp are from Club Scrap's Raku collection. I used a nestabillities die for the shape on the left.

My project today is a 5 x 7 clear acrylic photo frame. I decorated it with all papers, ribbons, and embellishments from Club Scrap's Jubilee collection. (except for the doll hair and body, those are Club Scrap Poetic and DIY respectively) Everything is attached with Club Scrap Bookbinding, Padding and Laminating adhesive, aka: glue. The ballerina is cut from Cricut's Once Upon a Princess cartridge at 4". Doll face is a Peach Keen Paper Doll Faces stamp. I think my stamping and pen work on the doll need some work, but over all I am very happy how this turned out. My youngest DD, who is 4, is starting ballet classes tomorrow so I made this frame with her in mind.

This is a close up of the rosettes, he pink is scored at 1/2" space and the gray is scored at 1/4" intervals. I had to use 24" of paper for the pink and 12" for the gray.

Here is where instrucitons and my inspiration for the rosettes came from:

This is a close up of the ballerina cut. My layers didn't line up very well, but I really think she is super cute!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
