Hello friends! Jennifer on the blog today! It's unofficially fall and I'm so ready for it! This is one of my favorite times of the year because of the bright colors on the trees as well as creating fall themed projects! Today I have one of the new 3D Frameables to share today!
I began by taking the Gather-Wagon Wood N Shape and painting both with white acrylic paint. I did not worry about my coverage being perfect since I am going to be adding another medium.
I set aside both to dry (which does not take long at all). To the wagon, I applied a very light coat of crackle effect to the surface. Again, I did not worry about complete coverage.
I set the wagon aside to dry and painted the the bottom oval base stand in orange chalk paint. I also used the same paint to color the edges of the Deco Art base frame. I did not fill in the center as I would be adhering my photo in this spot.
Taking the Deco Frame, I affixed different patterns using my 3-in-1 Beacon Adhesive. I then trimmed excess paper with scissors and an x-acto knife. Finally I smoothed the edges using a sanding tool
I repeated the same steps for the top oval of the base frame. I will usually add a thin line of acrylic paint around the edges. For this project I chose for the wood to show through.
After ensuring my white acrylic paint was dry, I brought out my Distress Oxide Inks to blend yellow and orange over the top. I focused on creating lighter color at the top to give the word a two-toned effect.
I again used my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive to affix the two base ovals together ensuring each slot is lined up. You can also see that the Deco Frame Base has an extra lip for inserting into the slots.
I added stickers and die cuts to my frame to accent but did not want to overpower the frame.
Once my crackle effect was dry, I lightly painted the surface of the Wagon with brown acrylic paint. I love the distressed look! I added paper flowers as well as pumpkin die cuts to "sit" on the back of the wagon.
And here is a close up of the Gather word with the Distress Oxides. The nice thing about the 3D Frameables is that you can mix and match pieces to suit whatever theme/holiday you want!
