Heritage Photo Frame - Featuring Once Upon a Lifetime with Katherine

Hi BoBunny Fans!  Katherine here with a frame/gift that I made for my Dad using a picture of his Mum and also some of the beautiful vintage papers from Once upon a Lifetime.

I used the Oval Chipboard frame, covering if first with a couple of coats of white gesso, but I kept the brush strokes very rough in keeping the vintage style.  I then inked around the edges with some brown inks to pull out the brush strokes and I also added some copper wax in various areas to tie in with the coppers in the papers.

Whilst all the paint was drying I set to work on creating lots of flowers from the 6" pad and using the Perfect Petals die.  I inked the edges of each flower and then pinched up the petals to give them dimension, for the centre bud I curved the petals outwards and then chose a coordinating jewel for in the middle of the flower.

I used some of the smaller flowers on their own and tucked a doily as an extra layer of laciness underneath.  I cut some of the leaves out of the green paper and tucked these around too.

In the papers you get some fantastic vintage plaques so I cut out the one that said "Mother" to add at the base of my frame.  I also added in some of the BoBunny blossoms and crochet flowers to my paper garlands too.

Thanks for popping in today!  Come back and see us soon!
