Gorgeous Girl Frame Gift (Kaisercraft)

Hi Everyone

The Giveaway previously listed here is now closed.
You can see a summary here and winners will be announced on December 9, 2012

 
Gorgeous Girl Frame

This frame was created for workshop I taught at Artfull Crafts earlier this year. I demonstrated a simple paint technique (see below) which can be used on any kind of wood surface. All supplies are from the Kasiercraft Save the Date Collection.

Paint Technique

  1. I have used a simple paint technique that will work on any wooden base and with any combination of colors. I generally use 2 accent colors with white or cream on top. In this case I used green and mustard as my accent colors with a white coat on top.
  2. Apply your darkest accent color to the frame. It does not have to cover the frame completely, but wipe any paint that spills over the frame edge with a baby wipe. 
  3. When dry – apply your second accent color and let dry. Finally, apply your top color (white or cream) all over the frame – again, wiping any smudges over the edges. 
  4. When COMPLETELY dry – take a small piece of rough grit sandpaper and sand over the top. Go lightly at first until you reach your desired level of distressing.
You can also use Washi Tape to cover the frame too!

    1. Always the first commenter hahah but hey I'm like a stalker here for every day of your Christmas Countdown.

      Is hard to choose one favorite project because you do wonderful things Lowri. But if I have to choose I choose the treat boxes of the Stamped Cookie Tutorial post.

    2. I've been loving all the projects you've been showing. I'm a big Christmas fan, so I'm going to say my favorite in the advent calendars you showed in November. I have an svg file that would go perfectly in the center of either of your advent calendars.

    28. I am terrible at remembering dates but there are a few projects that absolutely stand out in my mind - obviously your deck of cards - I actually am thinking that if I don't win the amazing prize of the first day I will embark upon the adventure and make it... the butterfly confetti - that was beautiful! A recent easel card that was also a butterfly - loved that... the Valentine heart shaped mini... oh, and the Kaisercraft drawers. No idea when you made that but what a beaut!! That was one of the first posts I read and I was hooked! So thanks for sharing all your talent and inspiration with us:-)

      1. Hi - the washi sticks pretty well to the raw wood frame - it probably wouldn;t stick so well to paint though..
        Thanks for the compliment too :-)
