Floral Frame–It’s a Blog Hop!

SCROLL DOWN FOR MY OCC EASEL CARD

Hello to everyone new to my blog today. At least I hope I’ll see some new faces because I’m participating in a Mother’s Day blog hop.  We are making some great projects that will hopefully inspire you to make some beautiful crafts for the lovely ladies in your life. If you came here from With All My Heart then you are in the right place. If not start at the beginning at Jamie’s blog for all the wonderful projects lined up for you today. But make sure you come back!

I don’t actually celebrate Mother’s Day but the lovely Jamie Rogers Moore who is running the show said no prob. Just create something you could give to a mom! Well, that describes 90% of what I create so I joined anyway! And I’m so glad I did as this frame was fun and easy to make.

The base is painted with chocolate acrylic paint. Then I adhered the DP to the front of the frame and glazed it lightly with PPA glue. The chipboard pieces and the DP all come from the Basic Grey Porcelain collection.

I ‘made’ the ribbon by scrunching it and dyeing it myself. I coloured it with R11 and RV10 Copic markers, just very messily, allowing the colours to overlap in places and not worrying about missed areas. Then I sprayed it with alcohol which blends the colours even more. The last step is to press it into a light brown ink pad while still wet to add some shabbiness and distressing to it. Then dry with your heat gun while scrunching and bunching it. I didn’t this time but if you want it really shabby, press into the ink again while dry. Twist it into a loopy bow and voila! Add some lace, a vintage button, twine and a few pearl sprays and all done!

Enjoy, Rebecca
