Altered Frame ~ Maja Design

Hello everyone!  For my project today I have a frame to share with you. I created this frame for my classroom as I wanted to inspire my students as well as add something beautiful to the space. It’s always nice to have some home decor pieces in learning spaces. I bought an inexpensive frame and decorated it using papers from the limited edition Nyhavn Collection.

I used Heritage Harbour as my background and created the splatters using Prima Splatter stamps. I covered some Kaisercraft words with Historical Atmosphere and Like a Colourful Bouquet papers and inked the edges with Prima dark bark inks. To finish I painted the sides of the words with Kaisercraft mango paint.

I used some chipboard pieces and altered them by applying chalk inks and distress inks.

To add some colour, I added some flowers. I have had these Prima daisies in my stash for a while and I added some die cut leaves as well as a twine bow to add texture. I used La La Land open leaf flourish and Elizabeth Craft curvy leaf dies.

I repeated the flowers in the opposite corner but picked up on the orange from the letters. I have used quite a few Prima flowers and the same dies to create the leaves in the cluster. I adhered everything using Prima art basics soft matt’s my favourite adhesive at the moment!
