Shimmering Photo Frames

I have a huge stack of these canvas photo frames from Stampin' Up! in my craft room closet. I was saving them for "someday". Well that "someday" came yesterday when I turned them into Valentine's decor with a little acrylic paint, paper, stamps and of course, Shimmerz!

For this frame I painted the frame with Heidi Swapp acrylic paint in "Betty". I then used a piece of old patterned paper that I've been saving for "someday" as well! Love this paper. It's by Teresa Collins for Junkitz which is no longer available but I'm all about using up my old stash this year! The heart stamp is from Stampin' Up! and the wings stamps are from Heidi Swapp. I stamped and embossed them in black on white cardstock. I then Shimmered them up with Hottie Pink Shimmerz in the heart and Hi-Ho Silver on the wings. I cut out the heart and wings and adhered it to my project with dimensional dots. For the chipboard letters on the bottom, I painted them with a quick coat of the "Betty" paint then a coat of Hottie Pink Shimmerz.



For this frame I used Hi-Ho Silver Shimmerz on the edges. I stamped the heart on white cardstock with Versamark ink and embossed the heart with Silver embossing powder from Ranger. I colored in the heart with Hottie Pink Shimmerz (my favorite, can you tell?) and colored in the wings with pixie dust. The text paper is new from Little Yellow Bicycle.



It is so cloudy and dreary today so you can't see the shimmer very much in these photos but you can see the fabulous texture of the paint. I didn't shake the paint on purpose so I could get the really chunky paint on the bottom of the jar!

Thanks for stopping by!
