Hello! Jennifer on the blog today to share one of the XL Birch Wood Frames! These home decor pieces are perfect to showcase your favorite photos or create a special gift! For my project, I used the Grandkids XL Birch Wood Frame with favorite photos of my kids from this past fall.
I began by using white acrylic paint on the letter portion of my frame. I also outlined the edges of the frames that will hold my photos.
I wanted to add pattern to my letters so I used my 12 Inch Chevron Mascil and applied Distress Oxide in Spiced Marmalade. I found that using a circular motion works best when inking.
Here is the end result of the Mascil and ink! I applied the ink heavier in some areas because I did not want the coloring to be even.
Next, I covered my frames with patterned paper. For the heart, I decided instead of a photo to adhere a sentiment as well as flowers I cut from my Silhouette and coordinating patterned paper. I also layered vellum and patterned paper butterflies by using a hand punch.
I also adhered cut out flowers to the corner of my photo along with small die cut sentiments.
