It’s Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge day today and it’s the weekend thank goodness. I do hope we have a warm weekend, who stole our summer??? This week our hostess is Pops and she has chosen a theme of butterflies. I was so relieved to be able to use a project I made at the beginning of the year for a magazine as I have so much work going on behind the scenes I am not getting much time for new cards.
So here’s the second project from the Magnolia wedding commission I did. Not much Magnolia on there apart from the heart stamp but at least it’s there lol. The couple is my gorgeous daughter and her new hubby on her wedding day nearly 8 years ago. And yes the mother of the bride cried that day but not nearly as much as the dad of the bride lol. Bless him he broke his little heart at the thought of losing his daughter. Little did we know we would see her more after she moved to her own home than what we did when she lived with us lol.
The photo frame started life as a papier mache frame from Hobbycraft. I gave it a few coats of acrylic paint then gently wiped gold paint over the raised bits with a make-up sponge to highlight the texture. I also applied the cold paint to the roses after slathering them in glimmer mist.
I even managed to squeeze a couple of butterflies on there. The large roses are trellis roses, they were just the perfect size for the frame, the little roses are 15mm roses. You can see from the pic below the roses stand quite proud of the frame, love those trellis roses!
And that’s it from me today, I am going to be stuck in this craft room all weekend. Have a good one whatever your plans.
