By The Sea Framed Art with My Mind's Eye

Hi everyone!  It's Apryl with the FotoBella Design Team here to share my latest project using My Mind's Eye By the Sea I Want It All Bundle.  Have you ever made a framed art project with your cutting machine and scrapbook supplies?  I have been wanting to do a project like this for awhile and am really excited with how it turned out! 

 I found this saying "Family is the anchor that holds us through life's storms" at the online Silhouette store and had to have it.  I used my Cameo to cut it out on a piece of 12' x 12' white textured card stock.  

I used a variety of 6"x 6" and pieces of 12"x12" papers from the By the Sea collection to tape to the back and fill the words.  It was such a fun creative process!  Mixing and matching the paper patterns to get just the right look I wanted took a while but was well worth it. 

I think my favorite pattern is the red and white stripe paper that I place at opposite angles for the words "Anchor" and "Us".

My second favorite?  The anchor!  I added a banner die cut that I altered to hide the words that was already written on it I and added our family name "Holland" using the navy and silver alpha stickers.  

I also added the lighthouse die cut to the bottom left hand corner of the piece.  So fun!  The embellishments and the white card stock cut out was inked using dark brown and navy ink pads.  Where is the frame from your wondering?  Good ol' Hobby Lobby!
