Hi there! It’s Gabrielle here with you today to share a frame I made using the Maja Design Walking in the Forest collection papers. I have to say this collections is an old favorite of mine, I love the tattered, worn look of the papers.
I began by picking up an inexpensive unfinished wood frame at a local craft shop. It cost me only $1.50 (I love me a good bargain!) I then had the daunting task of choosing which papers I wanted to use to create my frame. I say daunting because there are so many gorgeous papers in this collection that I had a hard time choosing which I wanted to put together.
While I was shopping for my frame I came across these pretty tattered looking blooms (Recollections brand). When I saw the colors I immediately thought of the papers and colors in the Walking in the Forest collection. I just love those faded denim colors and the worn craft colors. I added a little hemp twine and some bits of burlap to finish the rustic look.
Included in the floral package was this cute triple layer butterfly! I also did a patchwork design on this frame so that I could use a variety of the patterned papers in this lovely collection. I used some Bronze metalic dimensional paint to add ‘rivets’ to the cut edges. I also used a little water on the edge of the paper so that I could gently pull back the edge to reveal the Flannel Shirt paper.
I hope you enjoyed my project today using this versatile and beautiful collection. Be sure to pop by daily for new inspiration from our talented design team! xo
