Tami with you today with a project to share; one that features one of the new products from Clear Scraps; the You & Me Wood Word Frame.
These new word frames are a fabulous way to display a special photo and also make thoughtful gifts.
I was looking for a new way to embellish the wood on this piece and decided to try out my Ken Oliver Color Bursts. The powdered pigments are bright and vivid and I thought they would go well with the printed papers I wanted to use.
First I puffed out little bits of one color all over the frame, then I put another in different areas and finally added a third color.
Next comes the fun part, to spritz the powders with water.
The colors "burst" and blend into each other and work great to stain the wood.
The base and heart frame were covered with printed papers and the edges filed to remove the excess paper.
Use the heart frame to center your photo, then trace around the outside edge, cut out the photo slightly inside the line and glue the photo to the back of the frame. Then adhere the heart frame over the heart on the Word Frame.
Glue the small base on top of the large base being sure to line up the slots. Then all that's left is to put the You & Me piece into the slots on the base. For more stability you can put glue on the tabs, but if you want to mail or box and wrap it, that may be easier to do with the pieces left separate.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today, please come back soon to see what's new!
