Home Decor

I made this frame for someone who loves Butterflies and I thought I would enter it into the Craft Room Challenge   I painted the frame with thin layer of gesso and a layer of very pale blue acrylic paint. I coloured tissue with tumbled glass, antique linen, worn lipstick DI allowed it to dry then stamped the images of butterflies, flora and text in sepia. Scrunched and stuck it to the frame with Matt medium and then a layer of modge podge sparkle. The centre is a piece of crafty individuals background paper. I made the 2 small butterflies by stamping onto CI background paper again I used modge podge sparkle medium to stabilise them the large butterfly is bought but perfect for this frame. I made a grunge flower to finish. My home decor piece and present for my DIL Karen.
Thanks for looking, Hugs all Sandra XX

Ohhh this is so beautiful, love the butterflies and whats really wierd is i am working on a project with a lot of similarities, its square framed, in bluey green hues and have just cut out some butterflies to add to it. The frame is going to be mosaic though.... I was thrilled to see this beauty of yours today
