Our Story XL Birch Wood Frame
May 30, 2018
Hi there! Jennifer here today to share a tutorial on the Our Story XL Birch Wood Frame! The Wood Frames were released this past January and have been a huge hit! I have loved working with them and hope you have had a chance to do so as well! The Frames make great home decor pieces or gifts!
My favorite medium to use on the wood is chalk paint! Here, I chose a nice grey color for the letters as well as outside edges of the frames. Using my 6 Inch Wood Grain Mascil, I lightly applied white chalk paint to the surface. Below is a video tutorial of my process!
I adhered patterned paper to the frame portions with my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive. I then used my x-acto knife and sanding tool to remove any excess paper. I did not worry about having my edges be perfectly smooth as I wanted a bit of a distressed look.
Next, I added pieces of die cuts, chipboard, and stickers to accent the edges as well as my journaling.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope this inspires you to try one of the XL Birch Wood Frames to decorate! Visit the Clear Scraps shop to see all varieties plus Mascils!
Have a great day!
