Ingrid did a lot of painting and texturing for her background.  What a fun way to use your mediums.  The background was painted with acrylic paints and gesso.  Some of the areas were overheated to get more texture.

Ingrid used fish net, and lighthouse chipboard from Dusty Attic.  She added a light coat of gesso to these.

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.

Photo Frame

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.

Photo Frame

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.

Photo Frame

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.

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.
