Been a while since I've blogged
had a sabbatical from regular scrapping
I created this Christmas Frame from
the Victorian Christmas paperpack
available from Meg's Garden
Remove glass & paint a Kaiser 4 photo frame in gesso then 2 coats of cream paint,
then using texture paste create a rough surface & apply another coat of cream paint.
Spray lace lightly with walnut ink & glued around the frame adding string of small pearls.
When dry rub frame, lace & pearls metallic paint in gold & bronze.
Cut my chosen pictures from the ephemera sheet, mounted them on
cream, kraft, patterned paper & cream… using DS tape & 3D tape.
all edges are stressed & inked in walnut.
Paint angel wings with gesso & cream, tip edges in gold
Draw feather outlines with bronze pen
Paint all metal embellishments lightly with a gesso wash
When dry tip with gold & bronze paint
Glue chosen metal trims & flowers onto the angel wings, adhere to frame
Combine all embellishments & flowers to into place in lower left corner.
Cut out ‘NOEL’ title & 3D to the frame.Finish frame with a little sparkle with topaz gems …
