"Blissful Brackets"

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop where we are using Close To My Heart products to create artwork using "Blissful Brackets". Participants could interpret that theme however they want so I encourage you to make your way around the Blog Hop to check out all of the fabulous creations.

If you are coming from Melissa Robinson's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants below.

I have taken the medium stitched rectangle thin cut and created a "bracket" using a Jingle Joy PML Card. To make this a bracket I adhered both pieces from the thin cut (the frame and the center piece) popping up the center piece to also create what is sometime referred to as the eclipse effect. 

The PML (Picture My Life Cards) have lots of images this technique can be done with! 

Here are the stitched rectangle frame thin cuts, the middle or medium frame is the one used on my layout. 

I appreciate you stopping by my blog. Don't forget to continue your way so you can see the other artwork that has been created to share with you today. Now, head over to Wendy Kessler's Blog to see her creation!

Happy hopping!
