Daisies Galore Photo Frame

By: Chris Myer Williams

I have always found comfort and happiness when I was busy designing and creating. I have many interests and talents and often I am torn when deciding which art medium to work creatively in. Decorative painting is my first love; however, I also enjoy stenciling, jewelry making, sewing, crochet, needlework of all kinds, cooking, card making, faux finishes, decorating and gardening. Working in the craft and hobby industry for many years, I have enjoyed the pleasures of traveling, teaching, and sharing with others basic crafting how-tos! Currently, I am employed as the Marketing Education Director at Plaid. My career journey to this day, is still allowing me the gift of sharing with others the joys of crafting and finding their creative spirits! I hope that our creative paths may cross one day. Until then... happy creating!
What could be more fun than to create and enjoy a “daisy-filled” photo frame? Using the Plaid Daisy stencil as a guide to paint daisies is only the beginning. Adding decorative dots and lines to shade and embellish just adds to the fun of this project!
