Close up of the work. I totally love those American Crafts Glitter Thickers! Makes it look Groovie!
This is the other side. Do not be fooled!! The little square is actually a mini picture frame.
I believe it's 2.5" x 2.5"
I left a little secret note so she could measure the cardstock note against the photo she might wanna put in.
See the word "PURE"?
It's stamped on and then I used Glossy Accents to go over it to give it that embossed look.
Coz this galfriend here ain't got no heat gun and embossing stuff! I gotta improvise!
Once the glossy accents was dried, I love the feel of the glossy bumps of the letterings. Feels like the real thing!!
This is the side view, I couldn't let it look empty!!
So I stamped some florish pattern and again, used Glossy Accents to go over it to give that embossed feel.
My favourite all time embellies!!! Buttons!
Ain't they pretty??
I hope you liked this piece of simple altered piece. I spent a good 3 hours or so completing it. I guess once I've decided on the concept, the color scheme, everything else flowed pretty easily.
Give it a try!
The main thing you will need is Mod-Podge!! it helps stick your paper down and you gotta coat a thin layer over to seal it in, makes it slightly water resistant.
No embossing heat gun? You could use Glossy Accents to "fake" the embossing effect and still turns out beautifully! It's great for when you rarely do any embossing work!
For the frame, you could cut out small strips of chipboard backing (those you find behind your mat stacks of cardstock or a stack pack of pattern papers?), play with the width and length and stick it down. I sticked down the bottom and top piece (horizontal pieces) first as they help to "raise up" the side pieces so that you could slot in the picture/card easily (from sideways that it)
Play around and see what works for you yah?
If you had liked this altered work and explaination and had done something similar, share your work with me!!! I would love to see it! Just link back your project to the comments on this posting.
Can't wait to see what you've come up with!
