I am suffering seriously from crafting withdrawl this week. The planets are not currently aligned so that I can have some time in my crafty space and it looks as if it will be that way until the weekend. Fortunately, I have a little stash of back-up projects so that I can still share my work with you today.
I made this as part of the Gecko Galz cross promotion with A Day for Daisies. There is still time for you to buzz over and see how you can win A Day for Daisies Stamp gift pack AND a mega shopping spree in the Gecko Galz shop. You can also see the fabulous projects made by the other DT members.
This started life as a very cheap photograph frame. Quite sometime ago I painted it white and attempted a crackle finish using some Kroma crackle. Even though I followed all the instructions, to the letter, and didn’t rush any of the process, the crackle failed spectacularly. However, if you look closely can see some tiny crackles/bubbles have appeared.
I decided to go with the frame as it was and pretty up with the fabulous papers and images from the Gecko Galz. The main image is one from A Day for Daisies and I’ve simply changed the image colour to a soft pink using Microsoft Word. Then I’ve layered the image on to some paper from the It’s Not Easy Being Green paper pack and then on to my favourite design from Wild Roses.
The outside of the frame is decorated with paper roses and some butterfly images, also from The Gecko Galz. I’ve also added some glittery dots. I use Cosmic Shimmer glue to create these as I find it holds it shape really well and also dries super quickly.
Inside I’ve added some pink organza rose trim, a resin heart and a word tile that is actually a plastic bead.
Oh and just in case you’re wondering, I do still have 4 macaroons left!
Thanks for buzzing by.
