Penelope and an Altered Art Frame with Katherine

Hi Everyone,

Katherine here with a fun project using one of the new chipboard frames from BoBunny and lots of papers from the Penelope collection along with a couple fun mixed media techniques.

I took the square chipboard frame which comes in pieces and then coated it with a layer of Eggplant Pentart Creamy Acrylic.  Once that was dry, I added Crackle Medium in a few places around the frame.  I then mixed my own "blue" using white, dark blue, jade and a bit of silver too, adding a coat to further distress the frame.  I then went around with some of the silver metallic wax paste, some greenish silver metallic paint mixed with a little bit of matching creamy acrylic paint!

Then I added papers to back of my frame which will hold a 6" by 4" photo, slotted my frame together and proceeded to decorate it with the Penelope papers.

In the Noteworthy sheet (Abbey) from this collection there are loads of beautiful blue peonies, I cut these out and snipped the petals right into the centre, then bent the leaves up and inked the edges, adding a pearl to the centre, for extra depth and texture.

Here you can see some of the layers of paint and the chocolate brown coat through the crackles.

The silver metallic wax paste is the perfect medium to cover some of the laser cut butterflies, and you can bend the wings up and they will hold their shape.  The wax also works beautifully on the wood veneers too.

I created little clusters of the flowers,  layering them up

Thanks for stopping by today!
