A VINTAGE STYLE FRAME FOR A VINTAGE PHOTO

I had the opportunity to try out Canvas Corp Chalkstock Chalkboard Paper (which you can find at Custom Crops) and decided it would be fun to use it a bit differently than what may be expected with this type of paper. (First though, let me say, that I am impressed with the quality. It has a really nice weight and you can write on it with chalk, erase it and write again and again. Or, if you prefer something more permanent, you can use gel pens....I tried my Gelly Roll Metallic ones and love how it looks). For this project, however, I decided to use it to create some black flowers and also as a background for my Grandmother's photo.  If you go to my article at Custom Crops (just click here) you will find all the directions including lots of photos, what other products were used and a free .cut file for the flowers I created. I'd love to hear what you think so please leave a comment here and when you go to Custom Crops I'd appreciate if you left a review....I appreciate the feedback.
