Alterd Frame(craftyscrapers)

Hello My Crafty Friends...

It's me Arpita on the blog today,so today im sharing a project which i made using a technique that is new to me,tried this stamping technique for the very first time.Hope you enjoy the project and be inspired to try it too.I have an Alterd frame to share with you ,its always fun to give a new life to an old product.

 So here is what i made.....


Step 1
 have primed the surface with 2 coats of white gesso and have covered the inside with a masking tape so i need not be worried about getting the paint on the photo area.
Have spread white crackle paint randomly using the pallete knife.


Step 2
This is the fun part,i prepared some stamped images to make some elements for my frame.choose this flowery stamp have used a black dye ink to stamp my images.To make the mirror image of this flower I stamped the image on to the mirror stamp set from craftyscrappers and then placed a card stock over the mirror stamp and slowly pressed down and the image was transferred  and i had a mirror image,this was a super fun technique.



Step 3
U see the mirror image is light,i am no expert in please excuse me and i wasnt too worried i just used a black marker pen to darken the lines.Then colored these images using some color pencils and fussy cut them.


Step 4
Now it is time to color my frame,i have used Dreamy orangepeel,Sweet-tea rose,creamy banana Chalk paints and Lushy orchid shimmer spray from Craftyscrapper to colour.
I have diluted these chalk paints with little water and kept adding layers of thiese colors,drying them inbetween each layer of paint. till i was happy with the shades.
And finally added a flower , fussy cut elements , add some interest have used some pollens and  Briadal dress shaker elements from craftyscrappers and I was done with my frame.
