I bought the frame and flowers and sent a pattern to my dad who cut out some more frames for me as I wanted to do a few and my father does a fantastic job of cutting for me..
Anyway I had intended to do one for mum for Christmas using her wedding photo and their 25th anniversary picture and then a recent one. As usual I kept putting it off till 2 days before we left for holidays HELP....
So I thought just do it it wont take long and it didn't.
I painted the frame white, cut out different papers from my stash of papers , Kev printed and sized the photos then it was just a matter of arranging the flowers.Oh I forgot I also dry brushed some gesso on the flowers and leaves for something different.
This is the frame after it was painted white-Duh......
The finished frame.I also had some 3d butterfly's that matched the paper so I used a couple on the frame.
Mum hung this on the wall but you could also use an easel to display it on.I think when I make mine I will use an easel.
You can just see the gesso on the edges.I think it gives the flowers & leaves more depth.
I am extremely pleased how this turned out and so was she....you can see the 3d butterfly's here better.It needed something else and I didn't know what to use so once again I raided the shop (my stash) and found this little rhinestone heart sticker and decided to use that.It works well.
I even used on both frames some pink feathers I had in my stash.I think they blended in well.
So yeah! another two Christmas present crafts all done....And as usual it was done at the last minute.When will I learn?..
