Soooooo, I had this insert from a 12x12 3D frame. When I put my very chunky LO into it, I removed this insert, because it would allow my page to fit, but I didn't want to throw it away because I thought I might be able to use it someday... and that "someday" has arrived! It was already white, but I wanted texture, so I used a foam pounce brush and white chalk paint. I pounced the brush up and down with the paint, creating tiny texture and heat set it in between the 3 layers that I ended up doing. For the background, I had this 12x12 sheet of wire from Hobby Lobby, so I stapled that to the back of the frame. I painted it with the chalk paint as well. (The fabric behind the wire is just my backdrop for the photo, so this art is see-thru with the wire).
I used Prima Stationers Desk paper for the main piece and layered a 6x6 piece of acrylic over the top and used a sewing machine to adhere the two together. I did this, so that the background would seem soft, transparent and also, so that the center décor would seem to float in the midst of the frame. I used a Prima stencil on top with Prima Light Paste and Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Fabio White Sidewalk Spray for a light mist in areas. I used tons of flowers, Prima Shabby Chic Treasures Resin/Metal pieces, Prima Floral trim, and wood words from my stash. The remaining embellishments came From Reneabouquets Etsy shop (I will have those links down below). I will also have the link to my YT video explaining this project in further detail. Also, please note that the direct link to Reneabouquets Etsy shop is to the right on my sidebar, if you wish to go directly to the main page vs. through a product link! Thanks for stopping by!
