Last week I was so excited to be able to take a Kaisercraft Photo Display Frame Class by Kelly Klapstein.
Not only is Kelly another blogger but she writes and Designs for Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine. So yes it was a real honor to meet her in person and get to know her.
We learned a few new techniques, through out the evening and by the end of the night I was covered in black and white paint.
The frame itself was supposed to be done using a dry brush technique with black acrylic paint or a black soot Distress dabber. For my frame I decided to go with a solid black.
The wood letters were painted with white paint and before they dry we were to wipe them clean, let dry, then swipe a black ink pad over the letter.. Now you want to talk about a big mess. I tried out a new white dabber and when I went to dab my letters I noticed the lid had come off, there was so much white paint on everything it wasn't funny. But I did manage to fix up my first mistake. LOL!
We also made a clock for the top embellishment but I decided to go with one I had at home already.
The heart was cut from corrugated cardboard then inked with black pigment ink and emboss with black embossing powder, we then added beads and wire.
The bottom was supposed to be flowers and vines but since my pictures were taken in the fall I decided to go with leaves and acorns.
I hope you enjoyed my project for today, have a great week and stay safe!
