Step 1 You will first prepare you frame by painting 2 coats of White Gesso on the the frame and then adding drops of the Lindy's Stamp Gang Fuzzy Navel Peach Spray all over the frame. Take your Gold Acrylic Paint Dauber and add gold around all the edges!! Then take the Teresa Collins Damask Stencil and ink in various places along the frame.

Step 2 Cut 2 pieces of patter paper in the length of 12 inches and the width will be determined according to the frame you choose.The top half rosette was cut 2 x 12 inches. With my frame My other piece was cut at 3 3/4 inches wide by 12 inches long.

Step 3: Score both pieces of paper at 1/4 inches and then fan fold the pieces.

Step 4:  Glue the half rosette to the top of the of the other scored piece of paper. Then Cut to size from another pattern piece paper a back for the frame.

Step 5: Place the piece inside the frame. Then line the frame with the string pearls.

Step 6: To build the small banner you see below you will need to cut out of pattern paper 5 x 1 3/4 inch piece and then mat it with a larger piece. You will run these piece through the Xyron 3" Create a Sticker. Add a ribbon bow and your choice of flower to the center of the bow.

Step 7: Now begin adding details to the piece by using frames and Teresa Collins's fabulous Liquid Glue in her Xyron Adhesive Kit. Add elements such as flowers, flat backed pearls, a mini banner even frame out the photo with one of the frames provided in the paper collection.
