Winter Shimmer Frame

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas ..

This is my final post for 2018 before we welcome in a brand new year and more exciting projects for you all...

For my final post, I wanted to make something quick, and something that we can all make.   I have taken a plain wooden photo frame and given it a winter shimmer makeover..

Step 1

Take a plain wooden photo frame, this one was from my local crafting shop and was £1.30, inexpensive to buy and when transformed looks fabulous, remove the stand and glass from behind.

Step 2 and 3

Paint over the whole surface of the frame with white gesso and dry with your heat tool, then take a stencil and place over the top of the gesso'd frame surface and apply a thin layer of soft form relief paste and dry with your heat tool

Step 4

Apply another layer of gesso over the top of your stencilled frame and dry with your heat tool

Take some Aztec Pearl metallic paint and pain over the entire surface of your frame and dry with your heat tool

Step 5

Time to assemble your photo frame, choose some nice sparkly paper  or photograph and trim down to size using the glass window of your frame as a template, then assemble frame and display in your home

Thank you for popping round and your continued support this year, looking forward to seeing you all in 2019.. and wishing you all a very happy new year
