OCTAGONAL FRAME

Hi, its Karen here with a little prettiness to offer you!  This time I have been playing with the lovely little octagonal frame.  It has a lovely wiggly inner edge and come with its own flat packed stand which has a couple of gorgeous hearts on the ends!

Firstly I painted the whole lot with gesso and then some periwinkle acrylic paint.  I saw a lovely technique in this months Craft Stamper that I wanted to have a go at so that came next!  Its to make a crackle apearance just using PVA and paint...simples haha! I have awful trouble with crackle accents and the like so am delighted with this result...



In the centre I used a favourite stamp of Ophelia and then just added a bouquet & ribbon.  Thanks for looking today. HUGS XXX
