Straight Line Frames + Video



So, I have a cute story about why the matching game I made for Louisa is called "Silly Goose Ball."   She's always been a funny little girl and I would often call her "Silly Goose."  Then one day, I said "Goof Ball" instead.  Louisa started saying "Silly Goose Ball"  any time she thought she was being funny.  So now we use "Silly Goose Ball" for any of us being funny.  No telling what people think when they're not in on the joke!



When I saw the silly goose part of this stamp set, I knew I had to make something for Louisa.  Plus she loves animals and the puns are fun.



The idea for the Straight Line Frames started with this card.  This image is a strong image, especially in bold colors.  I couldn't decide what it needed.  I let it lay around awhile and then suddenly I thought maybe a couple of stars would be the finishing touch.  Well, the stars were close, but the card still didn't look finished to me.  It hung around some more and then AHA!  a Straight Line Frame.  



When I finished stamping the animals on Louisa's cards, I didn't think they looked finished either.  Especially the smaller animals that didn't fill up as much of the white card.  So, I thought what was good for the critter card would be good for the Silly Goose Ball matching game.

Each animal has a slightly different Straight Line Frame and instead of stamped stars, I used tiny die cut hearts.



I made these mini note cards too.  This is an old stamp set that I totally forgot about.  Woodware isn't even in business anymore.   I wanted to see what they would look like with words incorporated into the Straight Line Frames.  I really think they turned out super sweet!

Check out the video for tips and to see how easy it is to draw straight line frames.  
Well, darn this video has some issues.  Why isn't this easier?  GRRR!  Looks fine in my software!  It's not quite so irritating if you watch it small.  GRRR, again!
