Great Britain Summer 2012 Frame
I felt in the mood to do something quite painty and textural, and I got some more of these lovely wood frames from Happy Daze which are great for slapping on lots of layers. To the texture paste and paint I added some puddles of little seed beads set in Glossy Accents. I went with a Great Britain theme as I wanted to use a combination of the Crafty Individuals' British stamps, and the Papermania Portobello Road papers and matching stamps, using the stamps to make the shrink plastic embellishments.
The flowers are dipped in UTEE in the meltpot. My favourite bit is the big ben which you can see peeking out behind the flowers.
I also used a teapot charm, with a circle of the Portobello crown paper.
I used the Crafty Individuals' coin stamp on shrink plastic and added it to a bottle cap and finished it off with a crown. I cut bunting from the Portobello papers and added it to a piece of red ribbon stretched across the roof 'ceremonial sash' style.
