Love Authentique... "GRACE" collection


Happy Friday, this Mother's Day Frame was on the Authentique Blog yesterday!! Did you see it, if not  go over and leave a comment !! There is a chance to win some goodies!! http://blog.authentiquepaper.com/2013/04/gifts-for-mom-dad-with-grace-strong.html

Authentique Paper's "GRACE " collection , Therm -O- web and some
Glitter Dust spray and Micro Glass Beads.

I just love how I can fly by the seat of my pants and I can create
something out of the blue. If you know me well... this happens alot..haha
No different for this fun layered
"My Best Friend"
 frame for my Mom for this coming Mother's Day.

With fun details that just pop right off the frame..
 all made with this beautiful must have collection of papers "Grace".


I started by using a wooden frame from Michael's craft store.. then proceeded to pencil
the shape of the frame and cut it.. adding 2, 1 1/5 and 1 inch strips of decorative papers, that
I punched using some border punches.  each layer is using these amazing Therm - o - web foam
squares, in both the 1/4 and 1/2 inch size. and they are very sticky so it will hold on my project very well. I wanted to achieve a 3-D look so you can touch the dimension of this project.


I then took my project outdoors and sprayed some Glitter Gold dust all over it.. it almost
transformed the paper to look like fabric. it is delightfully glimmery and appealing without it
looking like a thick layer of spray. I just love this look.. you might not notice it in these photo's
that is how subtle of a look you will get. so your paper designs still shine through. LOVE that!!

The flowers I made Using some fun punches from McGill it transformed the "poised" paper
into the loveliest embellishment ever.. using punches for the leaves and  sprigs..  then adding the
individual "zots" singles to adhere them together..  and some foam dots to give the flower the
same height as the rest of the frame , so it is not tilting in any way.  I then finished it off with
some May arts ribbon and string and some pearls from Want2scrap .

I love how a less than $2.00 frame looks amazing with these papers.
 I know my Mom is going to love this for Mother's Day.
