Shabby Chic Frame
Graphic45 A Ladies Diary Paper
Well, I am happy to see all the new subbies here, thank you everyone for your support and for commenting on my posts and photos!
I love to meet new friends and this blog has given me the chance to expand my creativity and my horizions, so for that, I thank everyone who has stopped by.
Today, I wanted to create a little thank you gift for someone, and since I was in a Shabby Chic mood, I grabbed my Graphic45 Ladies diary paper, and I started fussy cutting out some of my favorite images and building layers on top of the frame.  It all started out with a simple coat of white acrylic paint, some Crafty Emblies (of course!) and an old Christmas ornament..that's right, that dress you see in the bottom right hand corner is a former Christmas ornament, which was super blingy and gold and i gave it a simple coat of white paint, a bit of old gold rub and buff and added some trim and flowers and it transformed it!  Remember you can paint over that glitter, it gives your piece texture, and its super easy to cover!
I then added some beautiful Wild Orchid Craft flowers, a vintage doily and a few metal embellishments and pearl trim for that finishing touch, and here you have the final product...

Thanks again for stopping by today, please feel free to leave a comment below or subscribe to my blog, happy Saturday everyone!!
