Altered Frame for Craft Tuesday

Altered Frame

I wanted a bright pink frame for my daughters room so I bought an inexpensive frame to alter. I used bright pink spray paint and let it dry overnight. I made light pink and white ribbon flowers and attached them to the corner, then I attached a small piece of ivory lace between the flowers. I also made a paper flower out of vintage book paper, inked the edges with vintage pink ink and fairy dust glitter, and placed a pearl for the center of the flower. . I used my Big Shot and cut the Eiffel Tower with black glitter paper and attached it to the bottom corner. A fun way to personalize frames for your home.

Sunday Wall Art 6/26/11

Good afternoon What's Scrapping!

I'm just popping in to share my latest wall art "Love"

This one was done on an 8x10 canvas. I found a patterned paper in my stash that had these flowers on it (don't know which company the paper was from), but I fell in love with the flowers. I fussy cut the flowers, stems and leaves from the paper. The stripes were on the back of the flower paper, so I used that for the bottom of my canvas which I applied using my Mod Podge. The top of the background was some cream colored cardstock from my stash, which was also applied with Mod Podge. Once my background was dry, I attached the flowers, stems and leaves with Mod Podge. For the word Love, I used my April Showers Cricut cartridge, some of the cream colored cardstock and some brown cardstock from my stash. I applied some Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Vintage Photo for the cream layer so that it would stand out from the background.

Thanks for letting me share with you today!

Wall Art 6/19/11

Good morning What's Scrapping!
Today I'd like to share my new wall art with you that I'm calling "Rainbow Fields"

I used an 8x10 canvas for this one. First I painted the canvas Antique White. I cut 3 strips from each color of 12x12 cardstock  and I used my Imaginisce Petal Roller to quill them. For the last step I attached all of the strips to the canvas with Mod Podge and I also sealed them all with Mod Podge.

Thanks for letting me share with you today!

Birdhouse Art for Craft Tuesday

I bought this wodden birdhouse from my local craft store for $1.00. I covered it with brown stripe and vintage text paper and used mod podge glue to adhere it to the birdhouse. Then I sanded the edges of the papers with a small nail file. After I sanded I began to ink around the paper and edges with pink and light brown ink. I attached handmade ribbon roses to the top right side and a handmade paper rose made from the same vintage text paper. Leaves were cut freehand and inked with mossy ink before adhering to the sides of the flowers. Then I used lace and pink pearls and hot glued them to the other side of the birdhouse. Some pink lace was also attached to the side on the stripe paper. For the embellishments, I used Tim Holtz buttons and pearls. Finally, the birdhouse was attached to an old wooden spool of pink thread and a tiny pink flower was attached to the spool as a final embellishment. Thank you for looking! Simply Create by Denise.

wall art 6/12/11

Good morning What's Scrapping!

Today I'd like to share "My Sunshine" with you.

This one is done on an 8x10 canvas.
Here's what you'll need:
2 different patterned papers (I used some Echo Park)
April Showers Cricut cartridge
Alphabet stickers (I used some glitter Thickers)
Teal paint
Black paint
White paint
Black Sharpie
Mod Podge

First I cut out my sun using my April Showers Cricut cartridge and applied it to the canvas with Mod Podge.
Next, I painted my canvas with my teal paint.
Once that was dry, I outlined my sun with my black paint.
then I went along the inside of the black paint with my white paint
I cut out my clouds and the word sunshine with my April Showers cartridge and applied them to the canvas with Mod Podge
Next I outlined my clouds with my black paint. I then cut out 3 butterflies and attached them to the canvas with Mod Podge. I then applied the word "my" to the canvas with Mod Podge. When that was all dry, I outlined the butterflies, "my", and "sunshine" with a sharpie, and doodled my butterflies trail. Then I applied my final coat of Mod Podge.
Thanks for letting me share with you today!
