Good morning Clear Scraps family! Have you tried the Clearly Framed frames yet? They are one of my favorite items to work with since they released this year. Today, I am going to be working with the Medium Square Fancy Frame.
The inside of the frame will hold a 4" x 4" photo beautifully, but the picture I had in mind to use is only wallet sized. I decided to turn this frame into a Frame to hang.
I peeled the protective film cover off the front, then mixed lime green acrylic paint with Liquitex coarse texture gel, and applied it with a foam brush messily all over the frame. Using my heat gun, it took about 15 minutes to dry. Once dried, I lightly dry brushed white acrylic paint to some of the raised edges of the paint to distress it. Once dry, remove protective film covering from back of frame.
Trim a sheet of paper to 5" squared, apply a thin bead of glue all around the edge of your paper and adhere frame to paper. While that is drying, cut approximately 25" of twine, loop each end of twine through decorative edging at the top, and tie together by double knotting the twine. Run a line of liquid glue along inside edge of frame, and adhere twine to frame the inside edge.
Cut a piece of Glue Arts 3D foam and adhere to back of photo, then adhere photo inside frame. I adhered Sassafras flowers to two corners, cut little hearts and a camera icon from my Silhouette Cameo to embellish the frame further.
Finish off the frame by either using Viva Decor pearls, stickles, or Piccolo enamel paint to add in little dots around the decorative frames edge. I thought this would make a sweet gift to my Cousin for her to hang inside of her apartment without the need for using a nail. It's lightweight and will hang easily on the 3M plastic wall hooks.
