I LOVE the way this frame turned out. I think it'd be just so darn cute in a little girl's room, don't you?
I started out by painting the $1 wooden frame with Magnolia White Acrylic Paint and sponge brush. When it was dry, I traced the frame onto the backside of the dp, cut it out and adhered the paper to the frame with Mod Podge. When dry, I sanded the edges with a sanding block and sealed it with a thin layer of Mod Podge.
To hide the seam on the left, I used a piece of decorative tape (ribbon on tape...what a cool idea!). On the right side, I hid the seam with that pretty daisy. Before sticking it to the frame, though, I spritzed Pixie Pink and So Saffron onto the daisy because there's some pretty pink and yellow tones in the paper that I wanted to bring out. After the spritz-job, I just stuck it to the frame. Here's a close up. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...49643?cat=5672
I stamped the Mother Theresa quote (from an old SU set...it's a set of 4 stamps...three quotes and one of a mother holding a baby...know the name of it?) with Night of Navy ink and applied a gemstone for a little added touch of sparkle.
Yes, this frame will hold a photograph eventually, but it just needed something in it for now. To solve that, I stamped one of the stamps from Stem Silhouettes (using Old Olive, Pixie Pink & Barely Banana markers on the rubber, huffing and stamping technique) and the sunshine with So Saffron from the Little Shapes set.
My co-worker loved it (phew!), I love it and I hope you do, too.
