Our Creative Corner

I had this lovely photo taken last year of the four generations of females in our family and wanted a lovely frame to suit the background of the picture.

 So I chose Rustic from Oct 14! I used a £1 cardboard frame which I painted with Decoart products.


I put blobs of paint at the top of the frame and scraped them down using an old credit card. I used TH script stamp and a splatter stamp with translucent ink over the top.



To create the rusted wrought iron gate effect I mixed Paynes Grey with sand texture paste and scraped it through a flourish stencil. when it dried I dabbed Qincorine Gold on top. Gorgeous!


I hope you are inspired to join our challenge, great choice, check out our lovely DT projects.

Our sponsor for this month is

Good Luck everyone, I look forward to seeing your projects.

  1. What a perfectly LOVELY frame to match your memorable generational photo Jan. I have a photo like that too – very special!! Love the DELIGHTFUL combinations of your blues/greens. But those flourishes are my fav part – such eye catchers. What a great rustic look you achieved. Looks like something you will enjoy for years to come too. Great inspiration. j.

  2. Just a FABULOUS creation, Jan! What a wonderful way to keep those precious memories alive! Just Beautiful!! XOXO-Shari

  3. How wonderful to have a photo like that, and what a place of honor you have given it! What a spectacular work of art! Love the depth you have created with your stamping and stenciling! Hugs!
