Other Supplies

4” x 17” Wood frame, Sheet of scrapbook paper (My Minds Eye 29th Street Market Peaceful Dream), Brush basin or container for water, Paper towels, ¾” Flat brush, Scissors, Fine grit sandpaper,

Instructions

  1. Basecoat wood frame Seamist using a ¾” Flat brush. Allow to dry. Sand smooth using fine grit sandpaper and reapply basecoat. Allow to dry.
  2. Using Inspiration Stencil, select the inspirational words and/or phrases you want and stencil in Greenscape around the border of the frame. Allow to dry.
  3. Using stencil brush loaded with thinned Deep Tomato Red, speckle the frame and around the words. Allow to dry.
  4. Measure and cut strips of the scrapbook paper. My paper was a two sided design so I chose to use both sides of the paper and flip every other strip. Adhere each strip of paper to the backing board using Matte Mod Podge. Allow to dry 10 – 15 minutes.
  5. When dry, brush a coat of Matte Mod Podge over the entire backing of decoupaged paper stripes. Allow to dry.
  6. Stencil Deep Tomato Red Scroll Stencil over the dry decoupaged paper backing.
  7. When dry, assemble the backing on the frame.

Tip: When decoupaging the backing board, be creative and try something different. Perhaps decoupage squares, or a patchwork design. Or to keep it simple, perhaps use gift wrap in one piece as long as your frame. I pieced my design as I was working with 12” x 12” pieces of scrapbook paper which were shorter than the 17” wood frame. mist using a ¾” Flat brush. Allow to dry. Sand smooth using fine grit sandpaper and reapply basecoat. Allow to dry.
