Craft manual picture frame “Vintage” by Nicole

Are you still looking for inspiration for a vintage style frame? I think you have come to the right place. Nicole made this vintage style frame for her design team project today.

The passe-partout frame was given a layer of white gesso for protection. Structure and design was achieved with the stencil from Artistiko “Wall” and the “Sand Effect Paste” from See Art.

A picture had to be put in the frame. A section of the rice paper “Dragonfly” from Stamperia, which I glued on grey cardboard with “Soft Matte Gel” from Finnabair.

With the stencil “Wall” and “Brown Rust” from the Rust Effect Paste Set by Finnabair I set accents on the picture.

Now the complete frame got a layer of “Brown Rust“.

Impressions from the mold “Frame with Leaves” by Art Prosvet got a layer of Impasto Paint “Linen” and Impasto Paint “Dark Chocolate” on top of it, but I diluted it a bit and wiped it off a little bit, so that only the dark color remained in the cavities.

Now I started to design the frame. A lot of things found their place…….among others the flowers “Gardenias(brown)” from Wild Orchid Crafts. Thereby I noticed…….the frame, so the colour had no expression…. It was missing color and shimmer.

The metallic colour “Bronze” from Fabrika Decoru gave me the colour and the shimmer. I had to put something on the casts as well, so everything was already right.

Then all I needed was glitter…….. The glitter set “Luminous” from Finnabair was used. Now I am satisfied and I really like it. I hope you like it too 🙂
