Pretty As A Picture by Tamiko

Hi Tamiko here and Happy Wednesday to you all! Can you believe that October is almost  over and that there is less than 60 days until Christmas? Wow, where has the time gone? (smiles) Today I have a frame I created using my handmade paper products and special trim.

Items used from Arnold Grummer:

Item from the Ribbon Resource

Other Items:
Twinkling H2Os
old Christmas wrapping paper

I began by creating my handmade papers and paper castings with the instructions found here. After the paper was made, I cut it to size and adhered it with my Helmar 450 Quick Dry. I then embellished the corners with the paper casting.  I added color to the castings with a little bit of Twinkling H2O.  I then took the gorgeous bow paper raffia bow trim and added even more texture to my frame and adhered that with the PVA glue.  Wasn't quite sure if i wanted to use a picture or a quote for my photo, but I was indeed sure I could use use either.. and YOU CAN also!
