Hi, everyone! It's Anita from The Flamingo Chronicals today to share a project with you. Springtime in Texas makes my thoughts turn to flowers and butterflies. I created this fun frame to go with my spring decor, and I have to say it is pretty versatile! I used the 4X6 Green Craft Frame from Deflecto for this project.
I added some fun dots around the outside edge using a Testors Acrylic Paint Marker - the let the frame sit overnight to dry. I found out the hard way that it takes the paint a while to dry on this surface :)
For my center section, I wanted to use a Sign Tag, but it wasn't quite large enough to cover the opening in the center of the frame. I made a double mat using cardstock, stamping the smaller layer using StazOn ink and a smaller Dyan Reaveley stamp.
The Sign Tags are a beautiful mat surface which makes them perfect for using rub ons. This is one from an older set, and I don't even remember what brand it is. Yes, I am a hoarder! For the leaves, I used a McGill punch I have had literally for years. It was one of the very first punches I bought back when I started scrapbooking!
I used lots of Prima Flowers, some buttons and embellishments, and pearls in the corners to dress the frame up. I have found that a hot glue gun works very well to adhere these on to the front of the frames.
Yes, these flowers from Prima are forever old too. Did I mention that I am a hoarder? I love these huge blooms, and I am sad that I have very few left.
Thank you for visiting and happy crafting!
