Greetings! Chris here, and today I am so excited to share this Framed Mixed Media Art I created with Stamperia Block Imagine Papers. Theses papers are just stunning in person. As I flipped through all of the pages that came with this collection, I found this one and I just couldn’t cut it up.
So instead I decided to dress it up! And then frame it!
Supplies needed to create your Framed Mixed Media Art
Graphic 45 Rose Bouquet Collection-Classic Ivory & Natural Linen (actually any color will do as you are using the sprigs and leaves not the flowers)
12 x 12 wood tray, burlap, paper doily, butterfly punch, flowers, scalloped circle punch, jute, paint, mini stapler, lace, pearl trims, metal tag
Creating Your Framed Mixed Media Art
Start by painting your wood tray with diluted paint. I chose red, but you can choose any color you’d like.
Trim your Stamperia Block Imagine Papers to fit inside your wood frame. Don’t adhere just yet. (I like to embellish first then adhere to my frame)
Cut some burlap scraps and staple to your Stamperia Block Imagine Paper. You can cut then in any shape. Also, fray them for a different dimension and detail.
Trim the lacy portion of a paper doily as shown below.
Next, adhere the trimmed paper doily as ‘False Eyelashes’ to your lady. Adhere a strip of lace down, to the left hand side of your paper. Do this, by curling up the longer length of the doily, and the shorter side will be attached to the paper.
From the front cover of your paper pack, cut out the heart tag. Punch butterflies and scalloped circle from your cover. Set aside.
Add pearl trims to top, side and bottom of your paper. Adhere floral sprigs as shown.
Add flowers, as shown in image below, to your paper.
Grab the cut heart tag, scalloped circle and punched butterfly. You can secure them to your paper now, as shown in my image. Cut out the sentiment from the paper pad and adhere to the right side of the scallop. Now, add a jute tie to the heart tag.
Next, you can add metal tag, a free style cut banner, lace trim and a punched butterfly to paper as shown. Add a jute tie to metal tag also.
Add floral leaves as shown. You can now finish your project by accenting your eyelashes with a punched butterfly. Adhere your finished paper into your frame.
I hope you enjoyed this project and are inspired to get creative with your fotobella supplies!
