Hello everyone ,
My today's inspiration is an Altered shabby chic frame,i hope it brightens your craft space! Here is how it looks-
For the base i started with a frame from an old wedding invitation ,painted it with gesso mixed with the soon to be launched Crushed Strawberry Mist for that shabby look. I had fun layering the images from the gorgeous Fairy Rhyme papers .Aren't these papers just adorable ?
When i cut them i decided to include the ballerina and the Bird cage with the flourishes around them. It did take some effort and careful fussy cutting but the effort was totally worth it ! Got to say the images on paper look just as beautiful as in pieces !
Here's a closeup on the big chrysanthemum bloom which is made from the Memory Box Lovely asters die,it gives a set of 3 layered flowers and leaves in one go ,with amazingly delicate petals ! The tiny flourishes are from the Cheery Lynn fanciful flourish coloured with Peeled Paint distress ink .
Added the silver diamante in the center for a lovely accent .The shaded small lavender roses are from the MFT Royal Rose die coloured with Spun Sugar distress ink .Instead of just rolling them tightly , i have scrunched and loosely rolled them for the shabby look . The Mulberry roses and the other embellies are from my stash .I have placed the Chrysanthemum on a a lacy rosette and have added some white netting for detail.
So how do you like the frame , would love to hear from you , And do join in for some shabby chic fun at our Challange #2-SHABBY IS CHIC !
