Metal Or Acrylic?? Crafty Bracelet Tutorial by Pinky
Fun with Mascils and Clearly Framed

Decorative Bird Frame

Good morning fellow scrappers & happy April Fool's Day for those of you who actually enjoy the concept behind this mischievous day!  Kay here with a decorative bird frame made with one of Clear Scraps XL shapes called XL Bird Shapes.  I took the largest of the three birds and turned it into a decorative frame.

I've also used one of Clear Scraps Clearly Framed Small Circle Deco Frame to hold my photo. 

This is one of the latest pictures I've taken with my son that I absolutely love.  The look on his face & his small body language is priceless!

To create the frame I covered the acrylic bird piece with designer paper.  I inked all along the edges of the bird in order to define it's shape and further decorated the edges with dots of light green acrylic paint.

I've used large flat flowers that I had in my stash folded in half in order to create the bird's wings.

I covered the small acrylic deco frame in designer paper as well, inked the edges and decorated it with dots of Stickles.

For the tail, I hung a couple of tassels.  With a basic hand punch I punched a hole through the acrylic and strung the 'Love' dominoe sentiment.  I love the fact that this acrylic is thin enough to punch holes through.  This allows you to string several embellishments right onto your project.

Behind the bird, I've adhered my journaling.  I simply printed my story onto a plain white piece of paper, cut it out and adhered.  Nice n' easy!

I plan to buy a small stand for my decorative bird frame & display this on my desk at work.  More details for this project can be found on my blog.  Thanks for stopping by & enjoy the rest of the week!
