Hi there!

Hope you are having an amazing day!! I’ve got a really cute project for you. Its cuteness being directly proportional to its simplicity. You would love doing it so much that it will feel therapeutic. After all its got to do with colour!

Do you have time for a small story?

Here it goes…

Once upon a time in Lausanne, there was a white winter day. We had just returned from a sunny holiday and were in the holiday blues or whites. My husband got a pile of mail from the mail box to sort and this is what I found, three white empty frames or cards…as a sort of advertisement for something. And it occurred to me ‘could the day be any more whiter?’ Seeing it empty made my mind run amok till it hit this idea. The idea of converting it into picture frames. And why not ?? We needed some, to put our holiday pictures, any numbers of frames in our home were not enough.

These were the plain off-white picture frames/cards.

And my stock of colour of almost all shades.

I drew an outline of dragon flies on the first one, elephants on the second one and cup cakes on the third one. Subsequently filled in with colours.

I’ve also added some 3D stickers on them.

I choose these patterns because I wanted to play with colours and make it as colourful on the outside as possible, as I wanted to put some black and white pictures in it.

Finally took a length of ribbon and hung them on it, across our window. Beautiful memories, preserved beautifully!

Colour therapy worked for me to beat holiday blues. You can try it too. 🙂 Also you can make them as a present for your loved one too.

How did you like our short and sweet meeting? Do tell me.  

Take care. I’ll be back soon.

Till then, stay crafty 😉
