Gecko Galz Design Team "Remeber my Mom"

Ok, I used the Emphemera from Geck Galz September "Aint She Cute"....

From the new Cricut Cartidge Projects..Fancy Frames, I cut a 10.5 Background Frame in Black Cardstock, the overlay for that frame, very lacey and loopey..cut it out of cardstock with an old fashioned postcard print. On the print I aged it with Gellato, ink, and a bit of paint. I cut a backing of chipboard for support, and also added a chipboard wedge so the frame can stand. I took the cut oval from the frame and cut the Emphemera apart, glued it overlapping the oval, then used Faber Castell glaze which is like Decopauge Medium. I attached the overlay to the frame. attached the oval to another piece of cardstock, and then set it in the opening. I also aged the Emphemera as some of it was very white. I ran a tape runner around the total back of the frame, tryin g to stay in the line with the black thicker frame. Then I took lace fabric and went around the tape adding pleats as I went. I added some sticker flower, and jewels around the frame, and then added a matted picture of my beautiful Mom, a sticker right across from it says "ALWAYS IN MY HEART", and lastly added some beads on clear string just to give some additional flare.

Any questions, please contact me. It sounds harder than it was as I try to give all the details!

Talk to you soon,
