Picture Frame

There is a small group of Filipino-American community in Northern Michigan.  Twice a year, the members would gather and enjoy home-made Filipino food and activities.  For the summer party, I wasn't able to make it due to prior engagements, but I wanted to make something for them to use.  I had two cardboard pieces from a rolling cart that I thought I could use as a base frame for a photo booth. I saved it for a future project, and the summer party was a perfect opportunity to utilize it.

So I painted the cardboard white, and started decorating.  The alphas are mainly chipboard and big stickers, while the stars were foam sheets cut with Spellbinders dies.  Of course, this frame's gotta have bling.  

To me, the most important part of this photo frame are the colors. The left side features colors from the Philippine Flag, while the right side shows colors from the American Flag.

I may be absent from the event, but it sure feels good that a lot of their pics have my work in it.

'Til next blog!
