Ken Oliver asked his Style Contributors
to alter something with blue.
I found this frame at Tuesday Morning in the clearance section.
I think it was about $6 (yippee).
The wood was chipped up but I was going to alter that part anyway.
After sanding the wood,
I mixed up a pale blue/green wash using
and made a wash using lots of water.
Then with a flat brush, *washed* the wood portion of the frame with it.
Next I used Heartfelt Creations flower die,
die cut a flower with some scrap paper
and gave the flower some shape with a Tonic Embossing Tool.
The edges were inked with Ken's Click It Ink Pad (Walnut)
Next, I needed something in the corner to create dimension.
This Crafty Secrets ephemera was on my desk and gave me
inspiration for the rest of the vignette.
I found a stick in the yard with some pretty blue moss,
an abandoned nest I had years ago,
a few *eggs* and some brown stems.
And now it's ready for the wall.
Hope you like the *blue* project.
