Family - Crafty Secrets/Glimmer Mist March Mix

March 16, 2009

Wow, it is now the third week into the Crafty Secrets/Glimmer Mist March Mix. Today I have a project to share with you.

I made this frame, using Renaissance Alphabets & More Heartwarming Vintage Booklets. I cut the letters to spell FAMILY, distressed the edges with a distressing tool and then sponged it with Walnuts Stain and mounted it on to chipboard. The background paper is from the Classic Paper Designs pad that I sprayed with Tattered Rose, Coffee Shop and Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist. I distress the edges with a distressing tool and then sponged it with Walnut Stain. Then stamped some flourishes from the Flourishes stamp set with Walnut Stain. Added the work Family to the background paper and a stickers from Family Matters. Between the frame and the main image I added some Vintage lace. The whole background piece and frame was then sprayed with Irridescent Gold Glimmer Mist.
Dimension of the inside of the frame is 10"x5".
