Old West Cartridge Challenge
Jen Stewart brings us another super fun project as a Guest Designer and she has a lot to say about this frame.
I need to say that this project is a little more advanced, takes a bit of time patience getting the small pieces together. I bought a frame from Michaels in the unfinished wood area for $1.00.
1. PRIME your frame first - the frame soaks up a lot of paint, so priming first will help cut down coats. I used 3 coats of paint total (primer, then 2 coats of green paint)
2. I found it easiest to cut pieces one step at a time and assemble. i.e. cut all pieces for the horses, then assemble horses, cut all pieces for the hat, then assemble - etc. Oh yeah - ink all the edges - you'll be glad you did! It just adds a bit more rustic charm.
3. If you have a Xyron, it made it faster and easier to assemble all the pieces together.
4. Lay all assembles pieces on the frame before adhereing them down.
5. I used pop dots for adhereing to the frame. Makes it fun to pop right off the frame!!
Remember this project is a bit more advanced using the Cricut. There is a lot of shifting of keys and lots of different images to cut. This project took me about 2 hours from start to finish. Have fun - this project is worth the time and effort!!
