seem to have it all, gorgeous cardstock, lace, and hordes of unique Architextures. I also wanted the photo inside a deep layer of frames. Each frame would need to be cut and placed exactly. Careful planning and LOTS of foam tape make this type of project possible!
Chipboard Frame: Gina’s Designs
Rinea Foiled Paper: Lavender, Ebony, and Silver
Black and White Photo 4×6″
Before I cut my frames I drew a schematic on the back of the Chicken Wire paper. I cut each frame and stacked them up so that each frame was positioned exactly on the schematic. I pierced diagonal corners of the frames. While putting my layout together I had only to line up the pierced holes to know where my frame should be. The piercings that showed were easily covered with embellishments.

Architextures Tall Base Swirls: Paint with High Impact Paint – Purple.
Mixed Media Origins Wings: Fussy cut from background.
Spring Flowers Paper: Fussy cut rose and leaves.
Architextures Wings: Place on lavender foiled paper, trim to size.
Lavender and Silver Foiled Paper: Punch 6-10 flowers from each color.
Step 4: Fan out flower so that it creates 3/4″ of a circle. Secure thread with knot and couple tiny stitches.
Step 2. Fold accordion corners in chicken wire paper. Evenly apply foam tape, glue dots, or layers of craft foam. You do not want any of your frame to sag so be generous. Center Chicken Wire paper onto black cardstock. Do not adhere accordion corners till later.
