Hello, friends! I've had some more fun playing around with Tim Holtz Baseboard Frames and Worn Wallpaper. This time, I've created a wall hanging for my BFF, because she really already does know too much. Ha! Ha! For even more ideas on how to create with these wonderful frames, please see my tutorial at Frilly and Funkie.
How do you like my new hankie? I picked it up at a yard sale in a bag FULL of doilies for just 50 cents this weekend, and I haven't had time to iron it. It's REAL silk! Squeal!
I sprayed my Worn Wallpaper with Distress Resist Spray in my box reserved just for this, so it doesn't get all over everything. Once it's on, it's on for good! When dry, I blended with Frayed Burlap Distress ink and adhered it to a Vignette Frame backing panel using Distress Collage Medium Matte. I used the actual frame on this wall hanging, so I had this panel left in my stash. The edges were wrapped to give it a finished look and then blended with Ground Espresso ink. I love the additional vintage appearance the spray gives the wallpaper, and the texture feels wonderful, too.
The shabby crackle on the Baseboard frame resulted from some experiments I was doing with Distress Collage Medium Crazing, crayons, and collage medium. First, I applied crazing in random thicknesses on the frame. After I came back to it a few days later, I scribbled it with Picket Fence Distress Crayon and rubbed it around with my dampened finger. This worked on my previous experiment, but this time some of the crazing started to flake off. I think I put it on too thickly. The white was too white, so I toned it down and sealed the crazing with Vintage collage medium. I like how it turned out!
To back the frame, I used my favorite mini stencil -- Floral and texture paste and colored with Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, and Bundled Sage Distress Oxides. My chosen Paper Doll girlfriends, a ribbon from Adornments Ribbons and Bows smudged with Picket Fence crayon, some Elements Remnant Rubs and a Snarky Small Talk sticker finish it off.
I hope you enjoyed this post and that you found some tips you can use on your own project.
