Guest Design Team Member ....

........for Try it on Tuesday. This week is altered week which is sponsored by The Craft Barn. They are giving one very lucky winner a £15.00 voucher to spend in the shop. How fab is that! Go join in !

I used a hard cover childhood book to make this photo frame.
PS - This is my daughter, Karlien, when she was 5 years old (16 years ago now) - don't tell her, she doesn't like this photograph! LOL


Cut out the top 4 pages to create the frame part. Tear off the plastified top layer of all pages, so the gesso will hold onto it. Glue all the pages together, except for the two the photograph has to be attached to. Paint the frame with a layer of gesso. Allow to dry. Add a layer of Viva Terra, and stamp into it with some (Katzelkraft) stamps to get a texture. Leave it to dry. Paint it with black acrylic paint, and while wet wipe off most of it with a damp cloth. Allow to dry. Paint with white acrylic paint, wipe off most of it with a damp cloth. Allow to dry. Buff with Pearl-ex. Mask the photograph and stamp the text (Katzelkraft) over it several times with StazOn timber brown. Use the same text and ink to stamp on the frame as well. Attach the photograph in the frame, and glue these two pages together as well with doublesided tape. To seal it all, spray it with hairspray.  

I am also entering this in the challenge on Make My Monday - anything but a card.
