Victorian Frame Stand Ups and Brand New Finnabair‏

Happy weekend everyone! I'm absolutely IN LOVE with our new goodies this week. Gorgeous Victorian Frame Stand Ups, stunning new collage sheets, AND the Finnabair line is in stock and ready to ship. All of these goodies will go beautifully together!
You can check it out HERE.

My favorite thing about the Victorian Frame Stand Ups is that they can be used for just about any holiday or theme! The idea came to me when I was packing orders and a Victorian Frame Ornament was sitting on a Butterfly Stick. And that was that! I just had to design some!

And how can you resist the yummy goodies below! I can't wait to dive in!

Art Time!

I had a blast playing with one of the new Victorian Frame Stand Ups. A few days ago while shopping I saw a gorgeous mixed media vintage bird painting, which was the inspiration for my piece. I adore the blues and yellows together. 

I would love to do a whole series with different birds! And of course the new Bird Collage Sheet I used would be perfect!

I started by "painting" my raw masonite pieces with Inka Gold. I learned a great tip while doing this. Using my sponge brush and adding a bit of water now and then, the Inka Gold went on smooth as butter! Often I use my finger to apply, and find the Inka Gold can flake off at times. The sponge brush/water method worked amazingly! It was SO FAST! And don't forget to store your Inka with a baby wipe to keep it moist!

I added black acrylic paint and Gold Stickles to my Bee Cut Out. Cute little guy! I'm calling my piece "Birds and the Bees".

I positioned my frame on my Collage Sheet and drew a very thin line around the center.

I cut out my Collage Image leaving a small border, and then glued the image to the back of the frame. Once dry, I attached the entire thing to my oval back. And then attached everything to the round base.

I finished my piece with some White Sharpie dots and three small crystals on the crown. This piece was super fast and only took 20 minutes from start to finish including photographs. My new Inka Gold application had a lot to do with the speed. I love the way it came out!
