I love grunge – it’s totally awesome….but some days I love Shabby Chic just a little bit more 😉
With the ”Wedding of the Year” now over, I find myself with millions of photos to scrap, but I know that it will take me ages to make that happen! Getting one or two out on display fast is a priority, and this little frame kit is perfect for the job.
Because there are two sides you get to use two photos…Side 1
…and Side 2
The first step for me was covering all the chipboard with white Gesso (acrylic paint will do the job just as well) just so that no brown bits would show through. Then I used Ivory Stampendous Aged Embossing Enamel to cover both sides of each clock die-cut.
When I put my photos behind the clock ‘frames’ I decided to cut out the unembellished top edge – it gives the frame a lighter, more delicate look.
But…again because there are two sides, you need to make sure you hide the ugly, glued back side of your embellishments. Flowers are the perfect disguisers.
All glued into the clear acrylic base – also decorated with roses – it’s a lovely addition to any sideboard….simple to make and so pretty.
