My first project for the month is a frame that I have altered using Graphic 45’s Botanical Tea Collection and Botanical 3 A5.
I started with a plain wood frame purchased for $1 from a local craft store, which was painted with linen acrylic paint. The page Birds of a Feather from the Botanical Tea Collection was glued to the frame using Ranger Glue ’n Seal.
The excess paper was sanded away using my favorite sanding tool, a cheap nail file from a discount store.
After the paper had been completely removed, an antiquing solution using white acrylic paint and an antiquing medium was applied to the sides of the frame and the paper.
After antiquing, the sanded edges of the paper were sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
Flowers were die cut from the Sweet Chamomille and Herbal Infusion pages. The edges of the rose were sponged with Stormy Sky Distress Ink and then shaped with a stylus.
The sentiment from Botanical 3 A5 was stamped on cream card stock with Ranger Archival Ink Cornflower Blue. The flowers were assembled and glued to the top of the frame.
The sentiment was mounted on another piece of coordinating paper and raised within the frame opening with foam mounting tape.
That’s all for me today. Thanks for stopping by and joining me!
