Fancy Filters

Have you guys seen all the Filter Flowers that Fancy Pants Designs makes? I LOVE them!!! They started off white and then they added printed filters to all of the lines, starting with Baby Mine! You can find them in the following collections: Baby Mine, Off To School, Oct 31,Summer's End, and Saint Nick. I think they are FANTASTIC!!! So much fun!

Here's what the filters from the Oct 31 line look like:




And here's a layout that I made that uses several filters.


Would you believe that this layout uses Fancy Pants' halloween collection, Oct 31! Not halloween related at all. :)

I took my three large filters and folded each in half and then in half again creating a triangle shape. Then I added them around my photo so it looked like they had made a complete circle. I stitched circles on them and then trimmed down the filters with scissors so you could see the layers. It looks like I had more filters then I had. :) I then scrunched up a small filter and kind of centered it over the large embellishment and under the photo. I also folded a small filter at the top of my page, adding stitching and buttons on top.

Here are some close up's:


Those white flourishes and the banner like triangles are FP rub-on's. :)


I hope I have inspired you to try the filters if you haven't already. They are fun! :)

Have a wonderful day!

How creative, I would never have done that. I have no imagination I would have stuck one on the page and thought I was amazing. Apparantly not. Great job!

Love what you did with yours! I wasn't so sure about them at first, but have used several already-very versatile!

NICE!!! Great way to use that product- I love the print but didn't buy this pack because I thought it was too specific- folding them was a great idea- love the ephemeral quality if it when used this way- beautiful layout as well. Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

Very cool! I have never seen these. Gees, the stuff you miss when all you can do is shop online. I can't look at EVERYTHING or else I'd have no time for anything. I can't wait to go shopping in a real store! :) That Halloween line is pretty versatile - love that the colors can be Halloween but don't scream Halloween.

I have 2 packages of the white filters that I got in a kit and I have had no idea what to do with them until now! Thanks! I love what you did with them! :)
