I used to have a postcard in this frame many moons ago - it had glass in it once!
When I saw Kirsten Sheridan's fabulous Butterfly Shrine on the Paper Artsy blog this week I loved the way she had joined the TH die to make a background for her lovely lady(she is on my list of 'needs')and all those beautiful butterflies I just wanted to make a frame myself. I had some mop up paper towel….
…... from making some backgrounds for another project I have in mind so decided to use the text stamp from the same set as the teacup lady I was using - LPCO14 - to stamp onto the paper towel then tore it into strips and used multi medium gel to stick it to to the frame.
I had already put to one side a piece without text on. This was used to put some honey comb die cut onto - the card used was from a TH stencil that came this week!
Stamped the lady and coloured her using Inktense blocks with colours mixed on my mat, cut her out and mounted her, and into the frame she went. Just to finish off I used the trellis die across the bottom and added some Spring Greens and some Prima flowers that have been in a box for a-g-e-s! The butterflies are from a box I bought in Waterstones a few years ago.
I attempted to use some Ferro Gold paste through a stencil but it's gone gooey on me so just rubbed some gilding wax around the edges of the frame.
She is going onto my little balcony where I know the sun is sure to fade her like an old painting!
I am going to link to the Paper Artsy blog where there have been wonderful projects this week.
Thanks for looking, Chris
