Hello everyone. It's Anna here with my newest project with Melissa Frances goodies. Today I want to show You round canvas created with this fun numbers strip. Since I got my parcel I knew what I will do with this wood veneer. It was perfect for highlighting some "number" occasion like birthday.
I am not a big fan of vintage look. I am rather a "bright colors girl". So I painted my strip with gesso and after that I applied acrylic paints to create a colorful, pastel background.
It was a perfect base for my composition of three photos. I added few cute embellishments here and there to create a party mood. I also added baloons.
I also used this wooden crown and placed it on the head of the real queen :) I also painted it with pink acrylic paint.
As You can see, wood veneers look percect not only in vintage / shabby projects. You can alter them with so many products like paints, mists, embossing powders.
I hope You like my canvas. Thank You for stopping by and see You in june.
I started this layout by adding modeling paste to a stencil to create my background.
Allow the paste to dry and give the stenciling a quick spritz with a mist of your choice.
Adhere your photo matting to the background. I distressed and inked mine, but this is optional.
Adhere your photos to the matting. Add your title.
To give the wooden pieces and chipboard frame some color , simply use your favorite inks and a dauber to color them.
I cut the frame into 4 pieces so that I could tuck them under the matting.
Adhere all your pieces to your layout as shown. Add a few splatters with a contrasting color.
Your layout is finished!
I hope you will some of these techniques a try and be sure to stop by Melissa Frances Store, she has so many beautiful products to offer for scrap booking, card making, decorating the home, wedding decor, and so much more! Thanks for stopping by the Melissa Frances blog today!
Melissa Frances just about manufactures the most beautiful shabby chic elements. Just take a look at the gorgeous white resins and its beautifully designed pattern papers.
On my project, I used pastel pink and turquoise pattern paper as my backing and created a mini shadow box with the help of a small canvas. Simply flip the small canvas (measuring 2.5"x2.5") and attach the resins. The layered resins acts as a "stopper" so that you can place little notes and mini letters (all rolled up in good old vintage way).
The vintage inspired hangar is a fantastic final touch to this decorative piece.
Hope you'll manage to find some time being crafty this week!
Hi crafty friends! Kathy here to share my little garden shadowbox. With summer right around the corner, I wanted to create a project with beautiful southern gardens in mind. I love the patinas that I see in the southern gardens in Charleston, SC and I think I captured that charm by pairing Melissa Frances Metal Flea Market Find Appliques and wood embellishments with Art Anthology mediums.
The bird embellishment will make several appearances before I finally settle on what I want him to look like. One advantage to using wood embellishments over chipboard is that they don't get soggy when repeatedly applying layers of wet media.
Hi crafty friends! Kathy here to share my little garden shadowbox. With summer right around the corner, I wanted to create a project with beautiful southern gardens in mind. Using Melissa Frances Metal Flea Market Find Appliques and wood embellishments made it easy.
I started with the back of an 8" x 8" wood panel to create the shadowbox effect. To create the brick, mix Art Anthology Stone Effects in Bone and Sandstone and a touch of Brick.
The Card is made of the same little, cute and beautiful pink flowers, white stamens and heart wooden embellishment. All wooden pieces are painted of silver pearl paint. In the center, I add the word "Silver Anniversary and names of the couple. All in Polish.
The composition is made of many layers. I add 3D foam between almost each embellishment.
Hello everyone. It's Anna here. I have a question - how do You store flowers in Your craft space? I used to keep them in original packages but now I am just floaded with half empty foils.
I decided that it's time to organize my flowers in some other way. I didn't want to spend money so I used some old jars from my kitchen. But let's be honest - they didn't look nice in my brand new scraproom.
I decided to uplift them a little using gorgeus Melissa Frances products. I am going to make separate jars for each color of flowers and today I want to show You first two jars - white and pink.
I will create another ones but first I have to eat my pickled cucumbers :)
I wanted to see through my jars so O only embellished the upper part of the jar.
The white jars is delicate and soft. I used wooden keys painted with white gesso. I also added a resin oval frame and beautiful, little flowers.
For my pink jar I added a little mixed media touch. It looks more messy than the white one. I also used wood veneers, like butterflies and a gorgeus inscription with tree "Inspire". I coloured all with pink paints and mists. My composition was filled with tiny flowers.
I am going to create few more jars. They look so pretty filled with matching flowers.
