Soon is Mother’s Day and I want to give a little attention to my mother. I created a mixed media frame in a delicate shabby chic look.
I used a simply frame as basic. Firstly I made some ornaments with the help of moulds and air drying modeling clay.
These were glued to the frame with heavy gel medium, I added some metallic sticker too.
Then I painted everything over with Chalky Finish ‘Vintage’ paint from DecoArt.
Now put some heavy white gesso over the embellishments to bring out the texture and details on the frame.
I used paper sheet ‘Birthday’ as background and the beautiful lady from ‘Emphemera’ 12 x 12
little lady was a cut out from the 6 x 6 paper back
I’ve always loved the combination of these colours and the beautiful ‘Celebration’ paper is probably my favourite in the stash.
Cut to fit and complemented with a metal frame from Prima and some blooms, the new frame in altered art was finished.
Suitable to this frame I made two wooden handpainted candle holds with her favourite flowers
and a irish crochet doily.
Thanks for your visit!
Have a beautiful time!
This is truly stunning! Creative Blessings, Tracy x
