How scrumptious is that? This would make a beautiful guest bedroom, you think? So this week I went off the card path and altered a picture frame. It's not my first, but it's the first that I have shared on my blog. I started with a naked wood frame and painted first with gesso, then with gray acrylic and lastly with white acrylic. Then I scrounged around my husband's work shelves and found some sandpaper and began distressing. That was actually kind of fun! I found the "recipe" on how to distress wood on Wikipedia. I took a doily, some white ribbon and some glitter tulle and made the corner ornament with lots of mulberry roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima. I used Spellbinders Labels 8 and 17 for the background of DCWV Violet Leaf papers along with DCWV Foil Stack. I used the same papers for the dress which I drew and cut by hand. I drew teardrops for the bottom of the dress from 3 different patterns and glued them together. I added some lace on the top and bottom with some pearls for good measure! The mirror is Spellbinders "Mirror Mirror" die which I absolutely love. I cut the mirror with paper from the two DCWV pads. Lastly, I added a few embellies on the corners. Here's the finished product:
Thanks for looking and go create a fabulous day!
