Photo Frame

One can never have to0 many photo frames to display all of your priceless pictures.  This frame is not only beautiful, but it is also very fun to create.  Can you only imagine what your friends and family will say when they see your talent?  This frame will be so beautiful to display in your home.  I would like to say Thank You to a very artistic lady Ingrid Gooyer for sharing with us today’s inspiration.

Photo Frame

To start this project you will need a blank wooden frame.  Apply a coat of gesso on it first and let it set to completely dry.  You will need to purchase small wooden window frames and slightly distress them with blue ink.  Also apply a thin coat of gesso to them.  Next you will cut the frame with the 8th of March paper and the inside with the 4th of April paper.

To create the  flowers use the Shapeabilities die and the Vintage Spring Basics collection.  Distress the outside of the flowers with a distressing tool.  Place them in a bed of lace, tulle and small wooden beads.

The lacy border at the top was punched with a Martha Stewart punch then lightly inked.  Add a cute birdcage chipboard piece from Imaginarium Designs.

The sentiments are from the stripes at the bottom of the papers.  Days to remember is from the 5th of March paper.

The “Enjoy” is from the 6th of March paper, and can be used on any of the project as well.  Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration.  For more wonderful inspiration be sure to visit Ingrid’s Place you will be so happy you did.

What a masterpiece full of inspiration on this layout!  This is one of those designs that can be adapted to fit any occasion.  Don’t you just love all the details from the chipboard altered with different mediums, to the amazing cluster of embellishments?  Never be afraid to mix and match with whatever supplies you have in your stash.   This fabulous layout was created by Belinda Spencer.

Sweet Pictures Of You

Belinda started out using a mixture of completely raw chipboard, as well as chipboard altered with different mediums.  For the title and Moroccan pieces she applied a couple of coats of white gesso.  The Madison Flourish was a little bit more elaborate.  Belinda started with a base of white gesso followed by Faber Castell Gelatos, then adding frosted crystal embossing powder and then some more gesso sponged on top.

The fun part of this layout is that you can open the folder the picture is on, and inside you can add more of your photos.

Precious Moments

Today I want to share with you loads of inspiration from Ingrid Gooyer.  This stunning layout is using canvas along with different styles of chipboard.  I just love the way the embellishments all complement each other.  It is obvious that a lot of  detail went into this layout.  A Huge Thank You to Ingrid for letting us share this with you today.

Precious Moments Canvas

Ingrid started off her canvas layout by using Gesso for her background.  She added a coat of Gesso onto the frame then she painted the little birds with glimmer glaze.

The heart shape chipboard also painted with Gesso and a coat of the glimmer glaze.

Some of the cogs got a layer of gesso and glimmer glaze and the others got an extra layer of silver paint.  Ingrid added her beautiful laces behind her chipboard, she added some flowers and a metal key.

The word remember was added to the bottom of her embellishments, also adding some distressing and inking around the edges.

Giving the title a coat of Gesso so that it would blend into the background.

What a beautiful way of mixing up her embellishments with her chipboard to create a one of a kind masterpiece.  Be sure to visit Imaginarium Designs for more outstanding inspiration.

Shabby Chic Frame

Today’s inspiration is a beautiful Shabby Chic Frame created by Olga Znamenskaya (Pastila).  What a darling way to show off your photos, along with preserving them in such a beautiful way.  The fine details combined with her priceless photo makes this double tiered frame so amazing.  I would like to say Thank You to Olga for sharing today’s wonderful inspiration found on the Imaginarium Designs blog.

Shabby Chic Frame

Pastila used a lot of different products to give it a lot of texture such as decoupage, texture sand, distressing with paraffin, painting, and one step crackle medium.

On the Alpha lettering she used her crackle paint and distressing.

Crackle medium effect was also used on the chipboard.  It made it look so amazing!

Using a stencil she added a design around the heart using textured sand.  This gave it a pretty texture to the heart.  She added some pearls, along with a crystal hanging from the bottom of the second heart.

Pastila added clusters of flowers to give it that feminine touch with some berry sprays.  Her birdcage was covered gold acrylic paint.  To pull the to frames together she added some pink crinkled seam binding ribbon.   You can see more of Pastila’s outstanding projects on her blog Smart and Beautiful.  You will be so inspired by her talent.
