It's the middle of winter, so hey, let's make something with a summery theme!
As I am writing this, there is ice as far as the eye can see. We had a beautiful snow fall followed by an ice storm, so of course I am going to make a summer piece full of flowers and insects and a lovely lady with green eye shadow. Oh yeah.
I used the pieces as templates and drew around them for the papers I used. You need one of each chipboard piece for both back and front.
The triptych will not close properly if you put the hinging tape on the outside.
make sure you allow for a little space between the chipboard pieces to compensate for the thickness of the inner arch and any paper layers you add. Depending on your layout, anywhere from 1/8 to 1/4 inch.
After I am happy with the way everything looks, I add a second coat of varnish front and back and voila. A happy summery thing to look at in the middle of winter!
Thank you for stopping by!
