A Photo frame !

Hello friends ! Glad to join u again with another post !
I am super busy with lots and lots of work as the dday comes near !
but here is a lil something i made
A Photo Frame !! 

Okay first up I got myself a MDF Square photo frame
From Hobby ideas, It looks something like this.
So i turned this into 
this !! 
Here is what i did
I first applied white gesso and stuck 
the Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die - Filigree Border 
Isnt it pretty ??
I wanted that unfinished raw look for the frame 
so i went on carelessly dabbing some gesso on top of the lace.
 Used Distress inks in two tones on the die cut lace
to get the desired effect. 
After the die was adhered in place and when the gesso was dry , 
It looked something like above. 
I then tried my placement of flowers and butterflies and 
when i was happy with it I modge podged the whole frame 
and quickly adhered the embellishments in place too. 

The flowers are handmade and can be made on order.
The butterflies are stamped with  Inkadinkado REACH FOR THE SKY Clear MINI
And then colored with pencils.
I used the  Maya Road OLIVIA ALPHABET MINI Chipboard letters
For the Sentiment. 
Dipped them in the precious "clear white pixie dust" by pie lane !

Finished my frame with some grey Pie lane glitter balls ... Gorjusss!!!
Oh yes :) so much IN LOVE with this project !
