Gorgeous frame

Hi everyone, Heather here making a rare appearance on the blog.
Gypsy Soul Laser cuts have got loads of beautiful frames in stock and this one the 6" deco frame is one of my favourites,

As you can see it comes in 3 parts, so depending on whether you want a lovely decorative frame or just a very plane frame you can use any part of this frame, or, of course you can use all 3 parts together because they fit perfectly inside each other.
Because I wanted the frames to look a bit coppery I didn't worry about gessoing them as they are brown already,but if  you want a light coloured frame you would have to either Gesso or paint the frame in white before you put colour on it. I used creative expressions gilding polish and glitter kiss to colour the frames,
 basically I used Fire red kiss, Sahara gold kiss,rich red gilding polish, gold treasure gilding polish,a tiny bit of coral distress ink and just applied them to the frames until I had got a colour that I liked.
 When I was happy with the colour I had a quick flip through my very small selection of bird pictures
and found this lovely little bird that fitted nicely into the smallest part of the frame,
so there we go, my favourite frame and a gorgeous little garden bird that I think is called a coal tit in the Uk, but don't quote me on that one. I hope that you have got some lovely photos that need framing and that you will have  a look at the great selection on gypsy Soul Laser Cuts

  1. This is wonderful. I never would think to use three frames overlapping at once! Mind blown!! I’m going to steal this amazing idea. Thanks for sharing your talent with us and for everything you do for our blog!!
