Hello Blog Friends! Today I have an Altered Frame that I created using the Beautiful New Paper Collection from Graphic 45 called Secret Garden! This is one Collection that makes my Heart Sing! I Love Springtime and all of the Pretty Flowers and this paper has so many Pretty Flowers especially the Roses!! I created my Frame using a $1.00 wood frame from Michaels. I gave it a coat of Gesso to give it a vintage look and to seal the wood. I traced around the frame onto the backside of the Beautiful Blooms Design Paper from the Secret Garden Collection. I also traced around the center frame so I could create a scroll frame around the center frame. I love using the 2 sided paper when using this technique as it gives it a great coordinated scroll. I created most of my Design onto the Design Paper before I adhered it to the Frame so I could add a Beautiful Double Loop Double Bow that I created using the Bow-it-All. I love using the Bow-it-All to create my Bows because each Bow comes off just as Perfect as the one before.
I adhered the Design Paper to the frame using Scor Tape. I added some of the Gesso to various areas of the Design Paper and let it dry a little and then wiped it off to give the paper a Shabby Vintage Apperance. I used Spellbinders S5-159 Imperial Gold Labels Four Die #5 for the frame around the window. I added some Bling using a Want 2 Scrap Pearl Swirl, and of cours I added some single Pearls too!! I embellished the upper corner using 2 Resin Rose Embellishments from Melissa Frances. Then I created some Pretty Roses using Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms Die Set S5-086 which I cut out of the Graphic 45 Beautiful Blooms Design Paper. I cut some using the front side of the paper and then cut some using the back purple side, I love how they came out. I also added some Leaves that I cut out of some Green Bazzil Cardstock using Spellbinders Foliage Die Set S4-328, I painted them with a little bit of Gesso and wiped it off to give them a little attitude. 🙂 I adhered them to the frame using my favorite liquid glue “Zip Dry”, I love this glue it dries quickly and holds tight and if you get a little extra on your project you can just roll it off with your finger… I also added some Prima Flowers to the Floral Display to give it some accent color.
Then I stamped a sentiment from Justrite Stampers “Elegant Frames” Cling Stamps Set using Memento Ink onto some Ivory Neenah Linen Coverstock. I added a Pretty Scroll to the sentiment using Justrite Stampers “Vintage Filigree Fancies” Cling Stamp set. I embellished the sentiment with some Pearls from Want 2 Scrap. Then I cut it out and inserted it into the backside of the frame window.
