Time to have some fun and create something pretty. I love the iCraft frames and wanted to create pinky prettiness and sparkle. I chose a beautiful oval frame and painted the pieces with chalk paint Coconut Milk. Once dried, set aide some of the pieces to use for a project on another day and kept the larger pieces for the bottom of the frame.
Cut the clock face from the decoupage paper. glue onto the oval base. Put aside. Paint the edges of oval out piece and smaller wooden pieces with watered down Radiant Raspberry chalk paint. You only want a hint of colour on the edges. When dry, rub the edge lightly with Romantic Pink wax. Just a hint of waxy pinkness. Paint the remaining wooden pieces with Minnesota Pines (one of my favourite colours) and dab some dark brown on the honey cone pieces.
Start to make your frame. I have layered some fine gauze on the main base and then glued some of the honey cone pieces to peek just form the left side edge. These pieces will also raise up the oval frame to help you place some of the flower stems and other wooden pieces underneath. Layer the oval edge frame on top and build your frame by adding flowers. I start with the larger ones and build the smaller ones around. It works if you don't have the flowers matching each side. Move the flowers around until you are happy.
I have used iCraft larger flowers and a range of their smaller ones - choose complimentary colours to add depth. Tuck your wooden leaves in and around to partly fill in the centre of the frame. Use the long stemmed mulberry flowers to fill in the spaces between the main flowers. Finally add in some of the flimsy leaves .
Fill in the inside of the frame with some of the arty stones. Top with fine gauze strands on the top of the flowers and glue crystal shimmer along the gauze strands and petals of the flowers to add some bling. Add a final dab of pink wax along the edges of some of the flowers.
I hope you enjoy my pretty pink frame. for more product information, scroll down below and click on the product to link to the store.

I love Mintay Papers and happy to sit and do lots of fussy cutting form their paper range to complete a project. This paper range is called Mamarazzi and is perfect for scrapbooking photos of my granddaughter at a drive in move night. Not many of them left now in Australia.
I decided not to do a mixed media page so some fussy cutting, and a bit of watercolor pencil outlines, perfect Dusty Attic chippie and a flick of some iCraft Coconut Milk chalk paint.
I hope you enjoy :)
