I decided to get a little messy and alter a frame that I had purchased a couple of years ago. I love the envelopes in the Burlap and Bouquets Patterned Envelopes and Folders Pack and thought they would make a great foundation for a collage.
I gave my frame a base coat of gesso, let it dry and then painted over it with Distress paint. I stamped a burlap background stamp in black on the frame in a couple of places and then added another thin coat of paint. The paint was a little too bright for me, so I spritzed it with some Mister Huey's Warm Calico mist and rubbed it over the frame, giving it a great aged look.
The roses are made with some of the gorgeous prints from the Burlap and Bouquet Designer Paper using Heartfelt Creations floral dies. The leaves are die cut from Precious Pearl Craft Metal using MFT dies, colored with a green Gelato, and molded for a lifelike look.
Next, I started assembling all of the pieces of the frame. The insert uses the burlap image designer paper from the Burlap and Bouquet paper pack. I framed one of the sentiment die cuts from the Ephemera Pack and used it as my main image within the frame opening.
The largest envelope in the Envelope and Folders Pack was used a a base for the flowers and foliage. I embellished the corner collage with die cuts cut from Add a Little Dazzle Brushed Bronze Craft Metal using a Die-Namites Die, Summer Branch. I have used this month's sketch at Die-Namites for my frame.
The frame is finished off with arrows from the Ephemera pack and that awesome burlap bow.
