Shabby Chic Summer - Meg's Garden

Hi there everyone,
My turn to share a project with you at Meg's Garden blog
using the some of the new papers from Meg's Garden.
I created and decorated a small frame, I have called it "Shabby Chic Summer"

They are great  for background work for projects and I also used one of the summer
images from A Summer's Day Collage 12 x 12 sheets.

All the velvet Flowers are available from

Meg's Garden website - Velvet Flowers

The background paper behind the the 
Chipboard frame image is Laces in Cream P6240A
a new collection of background papers called A Touch of Lace papers

With the chipboard frame I painted it white and then stamped 
some text with Antique Photo Ink, inked the edges as well.
The leaves are cut with a leaves die and Ode to a summer's Day papers.
The frame was bright gold, I lightly applied gesso all over it to
for a softer look.

Check out all materials available from Meg's Garden website
or here below are quick links to all the products available from Meg's Garden website

Touch of Lace papers - Lace in cream

The frame I have created is just an idea for you
to create one for yourself or you may want to include a photo
of someone special instead.

Thanks for looking, 
Have a great Day,   Cheers Adriana :)
