Today I am sharing a 12 x 12 layout that I adhered to a flat unfinished particle board frame from Michael's. The Paisley Frame from Gina's Designs surrounds the 5 x 7 opening in the frame and adds dimension. I decoupaged the design papers directly onto the wood, some of which I tore and layered. The paper is applied to the wood with matte Mod Podge, and I have tucked some of our intricate doilies in between the layers for added texture and interest. One of our Garden Fairies watches over the scene in the upper left corner. I painted the chipboard frame that surrounds the opening with a light coat of gesso followed by Lumiere paints in gold and lavender shades. The fairy is embossed with shabby beige embossing powder over some glass beads in the wings area. I also rubbed on some Inka Gold. Thanks for looking!
I Love animals and I own a pet boarding facility called Shelby's Eden for boarding of cats and small breed dogs. My facility was named after my beloved cat Shelby who passed away in January of 2008.
I love making scrapbook mini albums especially for the clients of my boarding facility. I also love papercrafting of all kinds with a vintage or shabby chic theme. I will soon have a line of greeting cards available on etsy. Other passions include reading, (mostly young adult fantasy fiction or biographies about musicians), Cooking whole plant based vegan foods, and I love many types of music especially old school soul and Motown, and todays pop and R&B.
