Picture Frame

I started making this frame just for fun. It's one of those $1.00 wooden frames you can find at Michael's.

I painted the frame with a off-white acrylic paint then layered Bazzil cardstock with some My Minds Eye pattern paper. I did a zig zag stitch around the outside and inside of the pattern paper.  I really really love how it came out. 


I cannot stop making these flowers. I wanted to show you a close-up of the flower so you can see the "Diamond Dust" I added. Diamond Dust can be found at Michael's in the adhesive aisles. Have you seen the Prima flowers at Michael's that have the water drop look? Well this is what you use. Just think off all the flowers you can make...If you haven't seen my video on how to make these flowers click HERE


Have a great Wednesday!
