I had so much fun creating this using Craftyscrappers Shimmer sprays and the effect was  astounding to my surprise!
These Shimmer sprays are water-based and are water reactive too,
which is great to use on paper & other porous surfaces.
They come in fantastic range of Colors.
The shimmer in these sprays adds the touch of beauty to your craft projects.
You can use these directly or you can even mist them
with water to lighten the color variation.
These are ideal for mixed media, DIY & other crafting projects.

A Brief Tutorial.
 
  • I took a piece of Beilo 300 gsm Cardstock mearuring 4.25″ × 5.5 “.
    I placed my favorite Rose Bunch stencil From Craftyscrappers on the card stock and secured it with the masking Tape.
  • Using a spatula apply the glittery Shimmer paste all over the stencil evenly.
    I used the SHIMMER PASTE- BLUSH
  • Apply the shimmer paste, evenly all over the cardstock and once done,
    pick the extra and keep it in the bottle.
  • Remove the Stencil slowly n allow it to dry.
    You can  air dry it or you can use a heat tool to dry it.
    I prefer air dry method for this effect.
  • Then I took a piece of Orange Cardstock measuring 4.5″×11″inches in size.
    and folded it in half scoring at 5.5″ on 11″ side.
    I adhered a matching ribbon and pearls on the embossed panel
    and using red tacky tape I adhered it to the Orange Cardstock.
  • I’ve also used lilac shimmer paste to make another variant for the card.

Okay so moving on to my tutorial now…
Let me share a picture of the frame first ,
after that will take you through the supplies list and step by step procedure for the same.

 

So here is my completed flowery photo frame.

 

1.jpg

 
I cant stop admiring this beauty.
Let me share now step by step making of the same.
step1
 
Firstly I made a photo frame using handmade paper.
For making the Frame  i was inspired  by my Dt friend
Deepti Agarwal  who shared a tutorial on Craftyscrappers blog few days back.
You can check her tutorial post here.

2.jpg
 
step2
 
Then I took Mdf embellishment,diamond dust and Bitter lemon Shimmer spray by Craftyscrappers. I mixed the spray and diamond dust in a separate bowl and then stuck on  the Mdf with the help of clear glue.
3.jpg

(This is how the MDF piece looks,
once the diamond dust and shimmer spray mixture is applied.)

4.jpg
step3
 
 Then I broke the embellishment into two pieces
and stuck on the frame with the help of glossy accents.
5.jpg

 

step4
 
After this I made these paper flowers using Premium Card stock – White color by Craftyscrappers. I have used distress inks to color the flower and added some leftover diamond dust. The crystal beaded Pollens were also picked from the Craftyscrappers store.

After arranging all on the frame, with few more fillers,
this is how my frame looks like.

Sharing some close ups of the frame,

step1

I took magnetic sheet, cardboard, White card stock , Kraft card stock and pattern paper and cut all of these in to 4 by 3.5 inches size as shown in the pic.

 

 

 

step2
T2.jpg

After that I made two sets as in the pic Where in set one I glued Kraft cardbaord + pattern paper and in another set Magnetic sheet + Kraft Card stock + White card stock.

 
step3
T3.jpg
 
Now I  did some marking on the back side of the cardboard where I glued my pattern paper as shown and cut out the window of 2.11 inches. After that I cut some card board strips and glued it to the three sides of my Polaroid frame leaving some space to keep the photo in place. Now I have to cut the extra strips.
step4
T4.jpg

In this step , I cut the extra strips ,applied the fevicol on it and mounted it on the magnetic sheet ( set 2 )..

 

Our magnetic Polaroid frame is ready..
(this is how it looks:)

T5.jpg
 
Now, you can decorate it as per your choice, theme  etc..
and you can slide your photo of size 3.25 by 3 inches from the top.

A brief description:
On how to create this Mixed Media Home Decor
  • For this project,I took a simple silver card stock and applied some Ash shimmer paste and let it dry.
  • Once its dried I run it through an embossing folder.Then I stuck this sheet to cardboard.
  • For second layer I took a gift wrapping shimmery sheet and again embossed it with same folder,then stuck that on top of base with help of double sided tape.
  • After that I stuck a window die cut from one of the pattern papers.
  • Next I used Craftyscrappers “IM Stuck On U” stamp set to stamp and water color these beautiful succulents.I did fussy cutting to these stamps and again attached with double sided tape.
  • The sentiment is a metal embellishment stuck on a background created using same ash shimmer paste and some blue and green metallic paints.
