This is my take on the latest PURPLE PUMPKIN Sketch Challenge.
If you love the HANDMADE FRAMES and need to use up some old chippies, I have made up the perfect little tutorial a little further down.
I wanted a bright fresh GET WELL SOON layout for my little girl, so I could journal her first eye operation and hospital experiences.
I tried really hard to hand make most of the items on the page. In a way a gift to my little girl and the special page she will one day receive.
I handmade the large rosette, frames and flag banner.
The little cute BEE button is from PURPLE PUMPKIN. The handmade Yellow button is from MLBOW. The little cloud is made by Leanne @ CLOUDS and MORE.
Please feel free to share but link back to here.
Find any odd chippies that would make a great frame outline.
Cut out the middles and file for nice clean edges.
Adhere some bling, rhinestones......any odd little charms that need using up really. The colour doesnt matter as they will be painted over.
Once the gems are in place and the glue is dry you can sponge paint over the frames with white or black Gesso before applying a coat of paint in your colour choice.
Add a layer of Clear gloss like Dimensional magic for very polished look. I kept mine in a natural Gesso painted state for a more matte finish.
I hope you have fun trying out this technique.
