On Sunday I stopped in at our local Winners (TJ Maxx or Marshalls for my American Peeps) and saw a beat up photo frame marked 'AS IS' for $2. I don't know what it was about the frame but I knew I wanted it. Sunday night I went into my craft room and created this framed art. I plan on keeping it in my room for inspiration.
First, I cleaned up the frame a little and applied white Distress Crackle Paint sporadically. As that was drying I die cut the dress frame (Sizzix' die "Sewing Room") from hardboard and applied Crackle Paint. Using the same die, I cut the pretty pink gingham paper from Graphic 45's Secret Garden.
Feathers were adhered to the dress form. Gold antique looking lace was layered on top and a rose antique button was adhered to the center of the lace. I stamped Quiefire Design's Love Lives Here . The dress form was mounted on gold butterfly wings (Sizzix' Layered Butterfly set). The background paper is the first patterned paper I purchased from Graphic 45- Birdsong- and is still my favorite paper from them.
Next, I cut strips from more Graphic 45 Birdsong paper and adhered to the frame edge:
Quietfire Design has a great Art quote and it had to be used on the frame. It was die cut using Spellbinders' Fancy Tags Two. Gold embossing powder was applied on the edges:
The framed art was completed:
I am very happy with how my $2 frame inspired this project. :)Hope you liked seeing the project. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
