Fancy Frame!

Today was my turn to post on the Helmar Design Team Blog and I wanted to share my project here today, too!   

This frame was inspired by a gorgeous, overpriced frame my friend Kelly saw at a shop in Austin, TX.

Knowing we could create our own fancy frames we gathered all of our adornments, supplies, and our friend Pam on a lovely Saturday afternoon.  With a table full of pretties (mostly from Kelly's collection) and lots of Helmar glue we spent the afternoon getting messy.  


Honestly, I think all three of us started with something in mind and wound up redoing our frame at some point during the process.  For me, I swiped off my first layer of gesso & paint because it was just a tad to thick for my taste.  

(a bit too much!)

( just right!)

We all used Helmar 450 Quick Dry Ahesive and ScrapDots to attach our pretty adornments. 

What I love about these frames is that we all created something totally unique from the same inspiration piece!
