Hi Everyone,
I'm a little late posting my Tuesday project. Better late than never right? Here's a frame I made for Ethan's 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. K.

The Green polka dot pattern paper was a very bright BoBunny paper. I white washed it with some acrylic paint and water. Love the tone down look....I inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink.
The frame overall measures 9 in. x 7 in. and holds a 4 in. x 6 in. picture. I picked up a couple of these frames from Michaels...this one has a more angled picture area and the others are straight up and down. I didn't think I would like the angled frame but I love it. I think a trip back to M's to get more might be in order....

The satin ribbon is just a wide piece I had in my stash. I used some Eline Prima Pearl bling and those beautiful flowers are petals from IamRoses.com. I sprayed the flowers with Marshmallow Glimmer mist and added some mini roses (also from iamroses). Stuck behind the flowers are some small skeleton leaves (yep Iamroses) and a beaded stick pin, you probably can't see the pin in the picture..

Well I have two more frames to work on as gifts and I'm done with those. Hope your having a great week. Maybe I'll actually get around to those Christmas cards tonight...


  1. What a lovely gift for Ethan's teacher. Lucky her. It was very thoughtful of you. Love the green paper you used as well as the pearls. I can never seem to find them at my Michael's.

  6. The frame is gorgeous. I love the colors and the ribbon. I am sure Ethan's teacher will love it. Something different ye something she can have for a long time. Beats creams and perfumes. LOL.
