Trim-A-Rim ING (say what?)

This is the first of two posts today. I'm combining this week's Diva Challenge with my personal project this week. We wanted a mirror for our camper and I found this fun mirror and message board called a Trim-A-Rim. I had some questions about hanging it as I wasn't going to hang it magnetically. I received an almost immediate reply to my online inquiry. It's a small friendly company. I ended up buying the larger of the 2 sizes which is 10.25" wide. While it comes with it's own paper rims or you can download them, I opted for designing my own. It came with a template (which will be nice for other craft projects too) that I used to trace over 12" x 12" lightweight card stock.

Before trimming to fit
I combined ING, the new tangle from Zentangle® and also this weeks Diva Challenge, with Coil. Tortuca(ish) fills in ING.
End result
If you'd like to see the cards I made this week, I've posted them here. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. This is a truly beautiful tangle. It will look really pretty hanging on the wall and everytime someone looks in the mirror they will have a beautiful trim to look at.

  7. Very nice combination, the patterns fit together well. When I saw the first picture, I thought it was a plate. Your frame would look good on dishes

  8. This is really nice and engaging. I might even have trouble looking at myself in the mirror with that "rim" to look at---nah---I'd spot some new wrinkles and grey hairs in my peripheral vision. ;-) (I checked out your cards too. Inspiring.)
