This frame was so fun to make! I got some frames from Target and decided i was going to alter them, because they were just to plain for my taste. I was so excited to use some October Afternoon Thrift Shop Paper. I really love this collection, it is an older collection, but i just couldn't find the perfect project to use it on. When i was thinking about what to do for a frame, i was going through my papers and as soon as I saw this paper I was inspired to use it with the Tim Holtz Dress Form Die.
Let me know if you have any questions, I will have a video on it sometime later this week.
|After I adhered the paper onto the frame, I used a multi medium by Claudine Hellmuth over the paper and the painted part of the frame, I did this so that it would be protected from dirt, dust, etc. Then i took my dress form die by Tim Holtz and cut it out with my Sizzix Big Shot. I used another pattern paper to cover the dress form and by multi medium over that as well, I took some gorgeous flower lace by Prima and wrapped it around the bottom so that it looks like a skirt, and put some Stampin Up pearls right above that to make it look like a belt. I also used some pearls around the neck part to make it look like a necklace and added a rose by IAMROSES (#R2-15). The roses are actually white, but I colored them in with some Glimmer Mist. I love to use the white roses, because then i can just color them whichever color calls for the project I am working on. Of course, nothing can be claimed as finished without some Prima pearls.|
Hope you like the frame, let me know if you have any questions. The frame is for sale in my etsy shop.
Come back tomorrow for a new frame I altered using some Stampin Up papers!!
