Hello! It's Jennifer on the blog today to share one of the new Wood Desktop Frames! If you haven't had a chance to play with one of these yet, you must! They are a lot of fun to assemble and make for a unique home decor piece! Even better as a gift! Today, I am featuring the You & Me Wood Desktop Frame which has a cute cut out heart frame perfect for a favorite photo!
I began by painting the word frame as well as the large base oval in black acrylic paint. I usually opt for chalk paint but acrylic works just as well.
While waiting for my paint to dry, I used my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive to affix patterned paper to the small base oval and heart frame. I cut away excess paper with scissors followed by using an x-acto knife to trim the edges. I then used my sanding tool to smooth any rough pieces. I also did apply a thin coat of acrylic black paint to the edges of each piece to give it a finished look.
Next, using the 4x6 Butterfly Flock Stencil, I lightly daubed StazOn Opaque to the front of the word frame.
Here, you can see the end result of my technique. Also, you can see I adhered an additional pattern behind the "O" in the You to give extra dimension.
Again using my Beacon Adhesive, I adhered my heart frame as well as my photo. I then added some embellishments from the collection I used to accent.
Next, I assembled my base by lining up the openings on each oval. I applied adhesive to the slots on the word frame and inserted into the base. A minute is all it takes for your adhesive to be set.
Using two of my hand punches, I added these butterflies from different patterned papers and adhered the front of my word frame. I had some pearl accents in my stash that I also used in the center of each butterfly.
