After buying this shrine like frame I wasn't quite sure what to do with it. Eventually I painted guesso all over , spritzed glimmer mist here and there, sanded, painted then crackle glazed it. Well that was the frame done but what to put inside?
For some while I have had in my head an idea of grouping a few handcrafted bits and bobs together on my recently decorated hall wall, the one that should of been duck egg blue but looks more pale blue (bah those paint charts). So I created a 'Home Is Where The Heart Is' design using my scrapbooking supplies. I wanted a shabby chic/sampler look and think the ribbon flower helped to achieve this.
Now the only problem is trying to hang it up on our rock hard walls! Hubby did try to bang in a picture nail but they just bend and then fall out so off to buy some special hard wall hooks, not pretty...but functional.
