Let's Gather 3D Picture Display
October 26, 2022
While I don't experience Autumn in the Southwest quite the same as many of you do, it is still one of my favorite times of year! We are all so grateful to have cooler evenings again, and our town often has several corn mazes and hayrides, along with pumpkin patches and sunflower fields too.
Hi Clear Scraps friends - it's Maureen! I have a picture display idea for you that is a tribute to evenings like this, using the 3D Frameable Base with Deco Frame. I love the colors and feel of Fall, so I'm choosing a color palette of green, gold and brown.
To start, I've taken a sunflower paper and traced out the top layer of the frame on it, then cut it out. I also took a craft blade and trimmed out the inside slits as well. Glue this on and set aside. If you want a sealed version, feel free to use some Mod Podge too!
To add the Autumn elements to this frame, I've chosen the Gather Word N Shape to decorate it. I'm "staining" the saying "Gather" and the wagon with a Distress ink and sponge. I've done this before on the Clear Scraps wood and love the look of it, and it's also a quick technique to make it look like a wood stain.
The sunflowers in the wagon are an assortment of sticker embellishments I have, and I'm staggering them in the wagon, and using tacky glue to adhere them. I've also added in some raffia in between to look like hay. Oh how I love a good hayride!!
As for the base of the frame and the outer frame, I've picked a green acrylic paint and painted on a coat. When I did, I realized it was a little bright so I added a sponged layer of brown Distress ink to it to make it darker.
The photo is added in from the top - I recommend gluing the outer frame to the sides and bottom only, so you can slide the photo in from the top.
Some additional sunflowers complete the look around the frame and it really is a festive addition to an Autumn-themed decor.
What do you think of this project? I like something that can assemble quickly in an afternoon, especially when I can choose color schemes and papers that I really love. I hope you're able to give this one a try this season, because there are so many frame sets to choose from!
More supplies needed are listed below. Thanks for joining me today - I'll see you next time!
Additional supplies: patterned papers, tacky glue, sunflower sticker embellishments, Distress Ink in Vintage Photo Brown, green acrylic paint
