You & Me Birch Wood Frame
February 13, 2018
Hello friends! Its Jennifer to share one of the fabulous new Birch Wood Frames that debuted at Creativation last month! There are six different styles of frames including the You & Me Frame I am showing today! And I'm going to tell you how I colored the wood, as well!
I had originally planned to paint my frame only in dark grey. However, it seemed too flat. So, I decided to try a technique Susan taught me! After painting with the grey, I used an old candle to rub wax onto the front of the frame. Next, I applied the white chalk paint in sections. Before allowing the paint to dry, I scraped the chalk paint with a spatula to create a distressed look. I did end up going back and apply more white chalk paint because I had too many scratch marks. Sometimes its a learning curve when you try new techniques!
I covered the frame portion in a black buffalo plaid print and adhered with my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. I used a cut file from the Silhouette shop to create these rolled flowers with different patterned papers. (Paige Evans "Rolled Flower" cut file #237217). I inserted buttons from my stash into the centers of the flowers, as well.
I adhered two of the chipboard leaves from the collection I used to accent. Using a pop dot helps to secure the leaves on the same plane as the frame.
I finished by using my hot glue gun to affix my ribbon to the top of the frame. Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out the variety of Birch Wood Frames by visiting the Clear Scraps shop! Have a great day!
