Hello everyone...its Jennifer and I'm back to share a spring project I created using the Clearly Framed XL Oval Deco Top Frame Set. Each set comes with one acrylic and one chipboard back piece. Both pieces are easy to paint or cover with paper!
I first inked the acrylic overlay with alcohol ink giving it a marbled look. Next, I covered the chipboard back with patterned paper. I carefully trimmed around and sanded the edges to take care of any extra overlaps.
I cut out an oval for the center with a different patterned and then added my embellishments! I used the bird and cage from the Clearly Accent Birds and Cage Embellishments. For the cage, I applied a light coat of Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam. The bird was colored with alcohol ink and adorned with a paper wing (cut out from old newsprint) and a rhinestone eye. I added pink tulle trim from Maya Road to the cage and placed paper rosettes and butterflies around the doily (which was misted with spray ink). I also added tissue and washi tape to the center.
Here, I use the 6 inch Chicken Wire Mascil with white spray ink in the upper corner. I added some additional drips of ink in yellow and blue to accent.
I used some of my favorite new American Craft Thickers to create my title.
Lastly, I added some additional paper rosettes and buttons, as well as a bright yellow chevron ribbon to hang my frame!
