I’m sharing a little tutorial of what I did with my round chipboard frame.

I started by taking my green ink and daubers and lightly covered most of the chipboard. Then I added brown ink here are there for a little dimension.

I used the tarnished brass paint to paint just the “berry” areas of the chipboard. Let dry completely.

Then I put a thin coat of the Ranger Clear Crackle Paint over the whole piece. Let dry completely.

Then using the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Girlie Grunge Art Medium

and a paint brush I added the liquid adhesive to the tips of the little “berries” on the chipboard frame. Let dry.

Trace out a circle onto cream cardstock to be adhered to the back of your chipboard frame.

I fussy cut out the little pink flowers and leaves from one of the patterns in the FabScraps Mother Earth collection, and then shaped them using the Heartfelt Creations shaping tools. I also cut out the little butterfly and shaped it’s wings. Adhere your bits to the chipboard frame. Using liquid adhesive I added black beads to the middles of the flowers. Using burlap string I created loops and adhered in back of the chipboard frame on the top and the bottom.

Your chipboard frame is now ready to add to your layout. I adhered the whole frame to the layout using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D foam squares.

My photo is matted in cream, kraft and grey cardstock and I used gold photo corners on the photo itself. I added the photo in the middle of the chipboard frame using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D foam squares.

Have a wonderful day everyone!
