Framed Memories...

Hiya Folks, brrr it's cold today, but trying to get by without putting the heating on!! I'm here today with my latest creation. I came across this photo of my late Mum and Dad taken on my wedding day, nearly 25 years ago this August, so I set about putting it in to a frame. I had a spare chipboard one so decided to decorate it! This is the final result.....
Sample 

 I started off with the chipboard frame, I covered it in white Gee-Sso by Indigo Blu. Then once dry a painted a couple of coats of Docrafts Pearl Blush Acrylic paint. Whilst waiting to dry I printed off the flowers project images from Delightful Digi's which you can get here. I opened the sheet on a word doc, cropped to leave the flowers and leaves I wanted then, printed on papers I had in my stash and cut out! I highlighted the flower centres using Yellow Promarker and Wink of Stella Gold pen. The leaf veins I highlighted with Wink of Stella Clear pen... I cut out two Lin & Lene Design flourishes and JoyCraft butterflies in gold card and 4 JoyCraft heart borders. I added flourishes with butterflies to opposite corners, then added flowers and leaves. I also cut out Britannia rose leaves in the gold card and placed with flowers. I arranged the heart borders around the inside of frame. To finish off I added pearls and gems...Here is a list of all the product used:-
