3-D Frame

Well as promised here are the photos of the 3-D frame that I gave you the sneak peak for last week....

Here is the full photo of the finished frame.

This is the constuction stage! First the 3-d back.  I created a box with an extra flap to fold over at the top so that it would stick to the back of the frame.  Before I glued it all together I stamped the background with some swirls and butterflies and added some crystals.  Next I added some pretty blue lace to the right hand side of the photo and added the large flower in the corner.

Now for the frame.  I painted the frame with some cream paint.  Once that was dry I then added some Jo Sonja's  Opal Dust to give the lovely glittery effect.  I then added my cream, then blue, then pink ribbons.  On top of that I layered the flowers and popped in two little birdies.

In the photo below you can just see the glittery effect... and one of the butterflies that I added to the frame right at the end.

And some close ups... spot the birdie!

In the centre of the large flowers I put these gorgeous crystal effect flowers which are in fact buttons

Went to my craft club on Tuesday which is what this project was for.  There were six of us who had altered our frames, everyone individual and all of them were stunning.  It was great to see how everyone else had decorated theirs.  Our craft tutor Lynne was thrilled that we had all made the effort and as soon as she has photos of them all she will post them on to here blog here
