Design Team Project By Gillian .... Featuring Kaisercraft

Good morning everyone .... the beginning of a new month sees some more projects from the Design Team, again featuring Kaisercraft goodies.

For this project I started out by using an Art Frame (size 20x16cm) available from Snazzys. To achieve the "Peeled Paint" effect ....

1. I applied a base layer of Burnt Umber Acrylic Paint, allow paint to dry fully (I used a heat gun to speed things along).
2. I then painted a thick layer of PVA glue (you can also use Vaseline) for this technique.

3. I then painted another layer of Acrylic Paint this time using Buff Titanium, to speed things along I used a heat gun but you can equally leave it to air dry.

4. Remove the PVA glue by using a soft cloth (I used a baby wipe), this will also remove the second colour of paint and give you the "Peeled Paint" effect, you can choose to remove as little or as much as you like.

5. I then used Distress Inks in Walnut Stain to highlight the edges of the frame and the centre insert.

6. I then tore strips of paper from the Timeless Paper Pad (this pad is available in Vintage or Black & White) again inking with Walnut Stain, adhere strips to frame using Claudine Hellmuths Matte Medium.

7. For the insert I used a Tim Holtz Texture Fade on cardstock, highlighting the crackle effect with Distress Inks Vintage Photo, trim to size and adhere to insert stand.

8. Apply Rock Candy Crackle Paint to top corners, allow to dry before highlighting areas with Distress Inks.

9. Stamp clock face from Kaisercraft Clear Stamps (Duchess Collection DS209) onto torn paper areas using Archival Ink Coffee.

10. Ink Kaisercraft Wooden Flourish (Roman Clock) with Distress Inks Walnut Stain, apply layer of Rock Candy Crackle Paint, set aside to dry. Adhere Ideaology Game Spinner and Hitch Fastener to clock then using Ranger Glossy Accents adhere to frame.

11. Tear quote "Time after Time" from above paper pad, ink with Distress Inks Vintage Photo and adhere to bottom left of frame.

12. Cut words from paper pad, ink with Vintage Photo and adhere to Ideaology Ornate Frame, adhere to wooden frame using Glossy Accents.

Thanks for stopping by and watch out for more projects throughout the month.

Great project Gillian, love that particular paint technique and it suits the frame and paper line so well. The overall grungy effect looks great.

Grrr, Mr Blogger is playing up this morning. 3rd attempt to comment coming up!

Fabulous aged (love that technique), grungy frame Gillian and the perfect project for these gorgeous papers and stamps. In fact you've given me an idea for a gift for my OH. It's our 39th anniversary on the 18th and this frame with it's sentiments and imagery would be perfect.

Fourth day of trying to leave a comment on this - don't know what I have done to upset Mr Blogger!
Who would believe that under all this beautiful artwork lurks a very plain plywood frame. Just stunning.
