Deflecto Frame -  8" x 10" Craft Frame

I've used Deflecto's 8" x 10" Craft Frame for this project.  I began by using molding paste through the Wave and Stars Art Screens.

While waiting for the molding paste to dry, I created the background.  Using white cardstock, I painted it with Sheer Copper Iridescents.  Once dry, I randomly stamped the Basket1 Stamp using Canyon ink.  I didn't want complete coverage so I was not careful about how/where I stamped.

To create the flowers, I stamped the Picnic1 Stamp on white cardstock using Berry Crafter's Ink.  After die cutting, I edged some of the flowers with Berry Iridescents, then formed them using the handle of a paint brush.  I then assembled them into clusters with brads.

The flowers were placed in the left corner using Tacky Craft Glue for a good strong bond.  To adhere the yellow flower soft  to the flower centers I also used Tacky Craft Glue.  The leaves were die cut from white cardstock and then painted with Limelight Iridescents and edged with Deep Woods Crafter's Ink.  They were then inserted amongst the flowers.

A photo was matted with 2 layers of cardstock then added to the stamped background sheet and was  then inserted into the frame.  The beauty of this frame is that the photo page can be changed out when you want to showcase another photo.

Please stop by everyone's blog and see their creations.  And please leave some love along the way.
