Altered Frame with Rae
I'm excited to share my project I made with the January mixed media kit featuring beautiful Prima products, Dina Wakley acrylic paint, and a Tres Jolie frame. Here's the kit:
And here's what I made:
I started out by gluing the frame to the base, then I added a few coats of the Dina Wakely white acrylic paint. I love this paint because it is thick and you can you can create different textures with it- brush strokes can easily be seen, and when you add more paint it gives it a real shabby chic texture. I added a coat of the pink Prima sparks paint, then mixed that paint with the white paint for a softer pink look. Take a look at the texture in this closeup:
Once dry, I added some Prima pink microbeads with some matte gel. I also added some of the microbeads to the flowers and on the inner part of the frame.
For the inset to the frame, I found a pink lace background and used the PicCollage app to add the sentiment: Happy Girls are the Prettiest, a quote from Audrey Hepburn.
I finished off the project by adding a Prima cherub from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by the blog!
Don’t forget that Tres Jolie can be found in the following places:
