Love Nest Wall Hanging

I was watching Lori Lennox on Ustream this morning and she was showing us all her lovely projects and ATC’s that she has made over the years and there was one particular project that I absolutely loved! She had made a mini album that had an accordian fold method, joined together with metal rings, I was really inspired and wanted to make one for myself, but after having a nose through my chipboard I discovered I only had enough for either a really small mini or I could adapt it to something else… so I did the latter and this is what I came up with…. Β a lovely wee wall hanging photo frame! Β  Β If you get a chance, hope over to Lorri’s blog, her work is amazing πŸ™‚

Whilst i was making the project live on Ustream a couple of the girls gave me some really helpful advice regarding embossing and stamping and inks, so a special thankyou to Rach (Rach0113) & Clare (gotpaintinmyhair) πŸ™‚

I am really loving the metal embelishments that Wild Orchid Crafts have in their store at the moment too πŸ™‚
