Tuesday Alchemy Challenge #20: Furry Companions

This week at Tuesday Alchemy, we are celebrating our furry companions. Do you have any in your life? I have cats & a dog. They are a great joy, provide lots of entertainment & offer unconditional love. I can't imagine my life without them!

I decided I would give my picture frames a new look. They currently reside in my dining room, displaying my big pup (He's over 100 lbs, by the way!) & flowers that bloomed in my garden a few years ago.

I wanted to move the frames into my living room. It's main color scheme is red, black & white. I painted, distressed & sealed the frame before adding red glitter to the corners.

To add more pizazz, I created the flowers & punched out leaves from vellum. I made my own matte for the three photos, which are all the same. Three different cardstocks are layered on top of each other.

The photos are my pup when he was actually a pup. Isn't he the cutest thing in the world? He wasn't little for very long & I can hardly remember him not being HUGE. This snapshot of him is a wonderful reminder of those brief puppyhood days.

I would love to see your furry companion photos, or better yet, why not join our challenge at Tuesday Alchemy & include it in your project?

If you participate, you have a chance to win a prize from our wonderful sponsor, Di's Digital Downloads AND Latte Dah's Design. Yep, we have two prizes this week, so two people will win!

That sounds like a really fun challenge!
Love the photo frames - each one of them. Nothing better than red and black together too.

You have totally transformed the frame Corrinne! It's a gorgeous colour combo and I love the pics of your dog as a pup. He is adorable :) Sarah x

Yep, my pup is a cutie & he still has that puppy look even though he is almost 4 years old (That's an older him in the unfinished frame, btw.)

It's such a cute idea! I just have the 2 cats. Our place is just too small to have dogs. We keep portraits of them in plain black frames, but maybe I should be thinking about jazzing it up!

Hi Corrinne

I love what you have done with the frames. And of course, having such an adorable furry friend only adds to everything you have created. I love the photo of your flowers too. You did an amazing job.
