I have had a very busy and wonderful family weekend, so this post is a little late.
Below are my last 2 projects, for Scottie Crafts, using the Spellbinders gorgeous Lacy Die Set.
First up, is a wee 6"x 6" layout, of my little cutie granddaughter, in a decorated wooden frame.
To make the wee layout:
Cut a piece of cardstock to about 7x7 and layer edge die cuts, punched border strips, ripped strips and laces (dye with TH Distress Stains or Inks or other sprays) etc. .
To soften and give a more shabby chic feel, I sprayed with Dylusions White Linen and wiped across with a paper towel, then sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mist - Interference Red to give a pink shimmer.
Cut to 6x6".
Cut a photo with one of the Lacy Heart dies. I then matted mine with a lace doily, a Spellbinders scallop circle die and some muslin.
Embellish with some flowers, pearl sprays etc.
To decorate the frame:
Paint with Gesso.
Using One of the Spellbinders Lacy Hearts combos, diecut 3 hearts and then cut them in half.
Also cut 2 large Elizabeth Dies butterflies.
Adhere to frame with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Matte multi-medium.
Paint over the whole frame with a liberal amount of TH Crackle Paint, Tattered Rose. Dry
Then Spray with Perfect Pearls Mist, Turquoise and Perfect Pearls Mist, Interference Red.
Add more pattern and texture with a mask and a Gel medium ( Claudine Hellmuth Studio Gloss multi-medium works well).
When it is clear and touch dry, brush over with matching Perfect Pearl powders.
