A Trio of Frames...

Hi Everyone!  Happy Monday.  I hope you had a great weekend.  I got quite a few things done this weekend.  I want to show you one of the projects I made.  I was looking through my stash and came across these frames.  I've had them for a few years.  I got them after Valentine's Day a few years ago at Wal-Mart for a $1 each.  I love clearance items, don't you?  I also pulled out a couple of felt white birds and a flower.
I just think these birds are the cutest.
As are the flowers.
I cut a square out of a sheet of vintage sheet music for each frame.  And then added the felt bird.
And here they all are.

Here they are with the red heart wreath I made.
I like them, but something isn't exactly right.  I think there isn't enough contrast between the sheet music and the white felt bird and flower.  So I dug around in my stash of pretty paper and found this.
It's a very pretty gray with a light gray pattern.  So I cut squares out of this paper and tried again.
These pictures just don't do it justice.  I liked the sheet music but I like this too.
I also changed out the stack of flower shapes and changed the center to a cream one.  It was just too much white on white on white.
And here they all are together.

And again with the heart wreath I made.
I think I like the gray background better.  But I do like the sheet music too.  Maybe if the frame for the sheet music was a different color.  And here's the sheet music once again.  
Which do you like better?  What would you have done with the frames?  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I like the gray better; it makes your little felt creations "pop" more. What would I have done with the frames? Oh, probably stored them in the garage for a year or two ;-)

  5. Hi there, both backgrounds are very nice - the frames are fabulous. Have you thought about trying a red flower/bird in the middle? They would really pop. Just saying.
