Oh my I can't believe its over a month since I last blogged, where does the time go??? I haven't been doing too much as my back hasn't allowed me to but I have made a few projects like my mums card for today and my grandson's christening keepsake for last Sunday but more of that another day. One thing I was asked to do by my daughter was to make a 3d picture frame for my grandson's other mama, Julie, for mothers day. She teamed up with her partners sister and they took their children to have a joint photo session so that I had one photo of all three to work with.
Its difficult to make something for someone you don't really know as I've only met Julie three times and not really had the chance to chat with her too much. However, her daughter said that the colour theme in her house was green and when she looked at my colour chart last weekend she said it was a similar collour to Old Olive so I had a bit of a starting point.
So I painted the frame with Gesso (not a SU product) and then, using a stamp from Vintage Vogue, I stamped around the frame in Basic Black. I them used the smallest butterfly out of Flight of the Butterfly and stamped the image in Platinum shimmer paint. I had a thin piece of rubber that came with my ink pad holder so I used the Beautiful Wings Embosslits dies with the big shot to make the smaller butterflies. The shimmer paint was added using a dauber. So that was the frame complete but I didn't get the actual picture until Friday so I wasn't sure what colours I was working with.
