Botanical Tea Frame



What a perfect day to reveal this little spring project I created with the delightful Botanical Tea paper from Graphic 45!  I just love the vibrant green tones in the Walnut Hallow frame and how the color plays off the pretty papers.  



Supplies:

 Botanical Tea 12x12
Botanical Tea 8x8
Shabby Chic Ornate Metal Keys
Shabby Chic Ornate Metal Keyholes
Shabby Chic Ornate Metal Brads
Shabby Chic Drawer Pull
Paper Flowers
Botanical Tea Banners
Botanical Tea Flowers
Botanical Tea Stickers
Walnut Hallow Frame
Perfect Pearl Mist: Pearl

Note:  To color the Walnut Hallow frame I used a combination of Distress Stain in Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters, Green Gelato and silver gilders paste.  




A layer of paper flowers was added behind the flowers on the face of the frame.  This added a great layer of dimension.




I love the banners that you can make as well.  Here I simply glued them to a ribbon to make a festive embellishment.



I adore the new shabby chic staples too.  The finish goes quite well with what I have going on here.



A final look at the layers I achieved.  Since this frame had a full back, I popped out the central image a bit in order to create more depth.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheers,

Rhea
