except with a more sophisticated feel.
Originally I was going to use this as a decoration for my bedroom,
That’s one of the many reasons I love to craft – anything goes! You may start with a great idea in your head, and halfway through the project, it can take on a whole new direction.
So anyway, beginning with a regular frame I had in my craft stash, I removed the inner glass panel and painted the frame white with acrylic paint. Topping it off with a shiny clear glaze.
Next up, the flower. This is a large silk flower that I picked up from Michael’s for about two dollars. It was attached to a long stem so I just cut off the stem and snipped off the greenery so all was left was the flower head.
I inserted this nice lime green scrapbook paper behind the frame. It’s got a good weight and a slight glossed finish; so I knew it would fit this project perfectly.
To add the finishing touch, I had this cute ribbon on hand also and glued that down on top of the green paper.
Some of the petals were popping up a bit too much so I simply glued them down too.
