Hi There!

Shell Carman with you today. I hope you are all keeping cool & staying out of the heat!
Today I'm sharing a Beyond The Page tutorial using the gorgeous Kaisercraft Small Photo Display & Flora Delight Collection!



You will need

Kaisercraft paint Magenta
Gesso
Glue
Foam Tape
Modge Podge or Glossy Accents
Crackle Medium
Shimmerz Enamelz Sparkalicious
Shimmerz Magenta
Ribbon

1. Start by painting the frame with 2 coats of gesso. Once dry paint 1 coat of Magenta Paint. Once dry paint a coat of crackle medium & finiah with a final top coat of gesso
2. Dry the top coat of gesso with a heat gun putting the heat gun close to the frame to create heat bubbles
3. Once dry take a emery board or some sand paper & lightly sand parts of the frame so that the gesso wears away & shows the magenta paint underneath
4. Take the Vinatge sheet & cut a 6X4 inch piece
5. Take the Reflections sheet & cut a 6X4 inch piece
6. Take the Enchanting sheet & cut a 4X3 inch piece
7. Take the Regency sheet & cut a 4X3 inch piece
8. Stick the cut pieces onto the frame working from the back of the frame



9. Turn the frame over & run a bead of glue around the edges. Stick the base to the frame
10. Take the small & large oval frame. Prime with gesso. Once dry paint a coat of magenta paint. Once dry paint a coat of modge podge or Glossy Accents. While this is wet sprinkle some Shimmerz Enamelz over the top. Dry with a heat gun. The Enamelz will crystalize to give a sugared appearance
11. Take the wooden words. Coat with gesso then paint Shimmerz Magenta. Leave it to dry
12. Take the sticker sheet using the large floral border sticker. Cut to fit frame placing top centre & bottom right edges. Take the fine magenta leaf border & run this down the centre edge of the frame. Trim off excess

13. Take the small oval frame. Choose an oval frame from the collectable pack & stick these together. Choose one of the sayings from the collectable pack (I have used 'Always remember if you smile the world smiles back') Use some foam tape to stick to the bottom of the small oval frame. Use foam tape to stick this on the main fram in the top right section. Use some of the offcuts from the label on the paper to decorate the outside of the frame

14. Take the ribbon & make a double bow. Stick some flowers on each side & in the centre. Stick the ribbon down on the right edge
15.Take the large oval frame. Choose a large frame from the collectables pack. Stick these together. Stick the live, laugh, love words on top
16. Choose a large floral cut out from the collectbales pack. Stick some flowers & mini bloom in the centre. Stick this piece on the top centre edge. Add some floral stickers to each side of the ribbon.
Choose a small floral sticker. Stick a flower & mini bloom on top. Stick on bottom left edge of frame. Use foam tape underneath stickers if it requires extra support
17. Decide whe2 you would like to add your photos. I have used a 2x3 inch photo for the bottom right frame 2X1.5 inch photo for the top left edge of the frame
