So anyway....... the project that I have to share with you today is a scrapbook page frame. I have had the frame for months now and last night finally had the inspiration to do something with it.
I painted the frame using some Docrafts pearl acrylic paint - Mother of Pearl as the base coat. I then stamped around the edges with a Justrite stamp - Classic edge with Stazon ink in teal. I have then used Tim Holtz crackle glaze paint in faded jeans. Finally when all was dry in went over the frame with distress ink - Milled Lavender to give the frame just a little hint of purple.
For the scrapbook page I have used paper from Maja Design. I have adhered it to the back inside of the frame. I have used embossing enamel to add a little texture to the sides and right hand corner, and
created my page using lots of buttons and flowers. The bird and clock elements I have cut from the Pixie Glen papers.
I have also embossed some of the wooden embellishments.
Finally I have put the frame together without inserting the glass and decorated the ouside of the frame.
