Mixed Media Photo Frame

Hello Creative peeps, this is my last post for Little Birdie crafts as we come to an end of the Design Team term. For this month’s project I have created a functional mixed media photo frame and captioned it – Adventure awaits.

I had an old metal photo frame which I wanted to transform. It had a coat of homemade chalk paint which I scraped thoroughly with a sandpaper before starting with a coat of White Gesso. I let the green tint stay on the frame as is, in some places.

Once the Gesso was dry, I added a layer of crackle paste on the edges with the help of a palette knife. I let the Crackle Paste dry naturally.

I added texture with the help of Monte Marte modelling paste and stencil rectangle jumble. Once it dried, I added diluted chalk paints in Mango, Rose Blush, Sangria and let it run in crevices of textures I created. I realized my phone was dead and I missed taking pictures of this part of the process.

Once my textures and colours dried, I added a trim from my stash, a hot air balloon from primed chipboard “Up and Away“, ephemera from Shabby Chic Bouquet collection and flowers Amica – Celebrate Life , Elvina – Amor Mio, Agnes – Celebrate Life and some die cut leaves to make a composition. I added some script background stamp in places to give it a vintage look. I titled it : Adventure awaits”. I added a black and white postcard to the frame which I had bought during my trip to Vietnam.

I hope you will get inspired by this project and give your old frames a makeover.

Till next time around- Ciao

Art Home Decor

Hello, creative! Today is the last day I will be here with you as a designer. I want to say thank you to everyone for this exciting time. Thank you Little Birdie Crafts for the opportunity to get acquainted with such cool materials. Today, as the last work, I chose Art decor for the house.

I have a lot of shelves and I like to decorate them with interesting items. I took a glass jar of juice and made it an interesting thing for the interior.

Let’s watch my step-by-step video tutorial:

At the final stage, I suggest covering the protruding elements with wax. In my work, I used:
