"Life doesn't have to be perfect..." upcycled frame

Hello Crafty Friends!

This month is a great month at Quietfire Creations: we are sharing projects using Quietfire Design's new stamp release.  We are also creating Quietfire Design projects incorporating a frame.  I like to upcycle so I chose an old, tired frame to make new again.

The focal point of the project is one of the newly released stamps, Life doesn't have to be perfect:
Life Doesn't Have to be Perfect - Mounted
Project instructions:

  1. Prep frame.  (My frame was old, dark, sad.  I applied white Gesso and then white paint to the frame.  After drying, gold paste was rubbed onto the raised areas.)
  2. Stamp quote onto white paper and die cut.  Apply ink to die cut before removing from the die.  
  3. Die cut gold paper.  
  4. Cut patterned paper to size and apply gold marker to edges.  Adhere to frame base using liquid adhesive.
  5. Mount gold die cut using liquid adhesive.  Adhere quote using double sided foam tape.
  6. Use liquid adhesive to adhere flowers.
  7. Apply liquid drops to create pearls.
Isn't is a beautiful stamp? 

It feels good to bring new life into an old item!  

Have you tried Quietfire Design stamps on an upcycled project?  If so, we would love to see it!  Feel free to share on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and tag Quietfire Design.

Talking about sharing, did you see the video I shared opening the package containing the new release stamps?  So many wonderful stamps!!!

Thank you for stopping by!
Have a happy, crafty day!
Big Hugs,
