Blog Hop! Look for the Dream and 3D Foam Squares!


Good morning!  Sherry here and I would like to welcome you to the second day of our Blog Hop with Scrapbook Adhesives, makers of quality and creative adhesives!

Each day different designers will be sharing projects using both Quietfire Design and Scrapbook Adhesives product. 

My project today is an altered frame using Quietfire Design, Look for the Dream, and 3D Foam Squares in both regular (1/2 inch) and mini. 

March2014SCLookForTheDreamFrameLEFT

I began with a dollar frame from Michaels, that the regular (1/2”) 3D foam squares were added to around the outer edge.  Mini squares were used for the inner frame opening.  Once the 3D Foam Squares were added to the frame, a layer of gesso was added to secure the foam squares to the frame and to also cover up the adhesive on the top. 

LookForTheDreamFrame

The frame was then painted with gray acrylic paint and when dry, was antiqued with white acrylic paint that had been mixed with a staining/antiquing medium.  Watercolor paper was trimmed for the backing of the sentiment area and painted the same colors.

The sentiment, Look for the Dream, was stamped in black and die cut/embossed with Classic Ovals SM.    A black background for the sentiment was die cut with Classic Ovals LG.   The 1/2” 3D Foam Squares were also used to mount the sentiment onto the black layer.  The flowers were made from watercolor paper with Grand Peony Creations and the leaves with Foliage.    The flower was colored with Fired Brick Distress Stain and the leaves with Forest Moss and Peeled Paint.
