Its my turn on the Clear Scraps blog today! To get in the spring mood, I am sharing a wall hanging I created with the Clearly Framed XL Deco Top Frame Set. Each set comes with an acrylic and chipboard back piece.
I first used gray alcohol ink and colored the acrylic to give it a marbled look. I then covered the chipboard piece with patterned paper from Simple Stories' new Vintage Bliss line. After carefully trimming the edges, I used a sanding tool to take care of any overlapping paper.
I cut out an oval from another pattern for the center. Using the 6 inch Chicken Wire Mascil and Dylusions spray ink in White Linen, I misted the upper left corner. I also added a few drips of ink from Studio Calico and Dylusions in blue and yellow.
I adhered and stitched a doily onto the oval piece then added the cage and bird from the
Clearly Accent Birds and Cage Embellishment. I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in Chandelier to color the cage. The bird was inked with Ranger Alcohol ink in. I also added a newsprint wing and a rhinestone for his eye. I used pink tulle trim from Maya Road at the top of the cage. Last, I added paper rosettes and newsprint/vellum butterflies (made from Martha Stewart Craft punches).
Showing a cluster of paper rosettes and buttons. I added buttons, rhinestones, and enamel dots as well.
I created my title with a new favorite set of American Craft Thickers! Love these! I also adorned the page with a clear button and yellow/white bakers twine from Whisker Graphics.
Lastly, I used some new yellow/white chevron ribbon from Maya Road to use to hang my frame! Be sure to check out the Clear Scraps blog for more acrylic inspiration! Thanks for stopping by!
