Teased you yesterday with a sneak peek of an altered frame. Here's the full reveal.
I was going to make a Halloween-ish frame with spider flowers....well the flowers turned out so cool and not very spider ish, I had to change the background for them. The collage pic below shows all the painty layers.
Starting in the upper left as a plain wood frame, a layer of pumice stone d.p., used Neelz shoal mask as ghosts, then streaked with evergreen bough and black soot dp and a coat of rock candy crackle paint.
Once I had the color I wanted I added matte black embossing paste words and lines using the TCW ledger stencil.
Now for the flowers, cut from patterned paper and a shiny black with a linen texture using HC Delicate Asters and Sun-kissed Fleur dies. A Nesties rolled rose and some gear die cuts scattered in the layers for good measure. The flower centers are glass beads while the two large spidery flowers have captured a glass heart each. The turquoise leaves were embossed with black acrylic paint while still in the die.
My sentiment is from Artistic Outpost's Typography plate. It's stamped on textured cardstock with brilliance ink, heat set then sprayed with a clear sealer.
I'm entering this in:
Artistic Outpost October Referral-Anything Goes using Artistic Outpost stamps
I think my non-Halloween frame featuring the color black turned out pretty cool. Hope you like it too.
I'll be back tomorrow with the 'second in a series' wood squares.
