Happy Birthday Page Frame

Happy Birthday Page Frame

Frames as large as this usually have me stumped as I tend to not have enough pictures to support all the frames. This is only my second Page frame that I have ever attempted. I love how versatile it is as it has embellishments that I can decorate already in some of the squares where as the first one I attempted did not all those years ago. 

1. Firstly I gave the frame a coat of gesso before I started work on it.

 2.I took out all of my photos and placed them in spots under the frame to work out where I wanted them and to make sure that they were all balanced.

3. Turning the frame over I added tape to all the edges and then started taping down my photos. After each photo I turned the frame over and trimmed any excess photo that may have been protruding onto 
the next frame.

4. Now for the fun part - decorating all the chipboard embellishments. 
For the balloon I added Puff Embossing Powder which gave the chipboard a fantastic texture.

The candles I added some micro beads to the stems and Flocking for the burning candle part

to the streamer a little kindy glitz

to the happy birthday... a little pen work and some inkessentials (dimensional magic)
On the outer of the frame I chose to paint it with a Plaid white Gel paint which gave the frame a lovely marbled effect.

Finally I added the number 15 out of my stash to balance out the pink of the Happy Birthday on the opposite corner. Some washi tape to add a little more color and tie in more of the summery colors in the photos. I used some old paper i had in my stash.. Basic my background. I painted up some timber crowns and added the sticker word celebrate.

Thanks for popping by and checking out my project for this month
have fun creating

NOTE: The new Happy Birthday Page Frame will be uploaded on the website very soon for purchase.
