Hi there Craft Friends!
I'm Dana and it's time to share another Home Decor project featuring Clear Scraps 3D Frameables! These are so easy to create and fun to decorate and embellish! For this project today we will be using Clear Scraps Square base and frame Click here and Word and Shape vacation/palm tree Click here This is a perfect way to display a favorite summer vacation photo!
For my project, I chose a Hawaiian theme since my daughter and son in law recently went to Hawaii for their honeymoon. The papers I chose are from Vicki Boutin "Sweet Rush" paper collection.
To begin, I took out my palm tree shape and vacation word piece from my package. Using a paintbrush i applied some bright green acrylic paint on the palm leaves. For the tree trunk base, I applied some rust paste brown and gold using a bouncing motion and layering one on top of another. I want to create a more rustic texture to the trunk. For the bottom of my palm tree, I applied a coat of tan acrylic paint. Let dry. Then applied some texture sand over the top. Let dry.
Taking my vacation words piece, I applied some Finnibair Sparks paint- Mermaid Pond on the top. Yellow acrylic paint in the middle and orange acrylic paint on the bottom. Let dry.
Remove both of your bottom wood bases from your package. I traced with a pencil around each shape. Cut out roughly and using Beacon glue, I applied my paper to both bases. Then using a x-acto knife, I trimmed away any excess paper. Then using a Distress tool or sanding tool, smooth out any rough edges. Make sure your slots are lined up correctly and evenly, before adhering both pieces together. I added some silver rope trim along the bottom edge of my base.
Next I fussy cut out one of the pretty flowers from my leftover papers. Inked along the edges using Distress Ink-Rusty Hinge. I applied some Spectrum Noir Glossy Highlights medium to add dimension and 3 D look. Let dry overnight.
Taking my two frame pieces, I adhered some matching floral washi tape along the edge of the front part of my frame.
Then I chose a favorite photo and adhered to the center of my back frame base. Then glue your top frame in place. Make sure you lined the edges up at the top. Slide into place on your base.
Now the fun part of decorating your frame and adding any embellishments you like. I used some Jolee stickers and added foam dots to the back of my fussy cut flower and adhered to the right lower corner on my frame. I added a small flower sticker on the dot of the "I" in vacation along with some wave stickers at the bottom. To finish I adhered a "Hawaii " title sticker at the top!
