Wings On Wednesday – Layered Frame Layout

Charity here from Scrappin’ Chaos with a 12×12 layout featuring a photo I love to scrapbook like a song on repeat. At the age of fourteen my daughter arranged the outfit, the pose, and the lighting  for this photo all herself. This one looks good so many different ways I just have to try them all.
I chose a very dramatic color scheme for this remake with an emphasis on wings. I wanted lots of layers, flowers, and textures. Canvas Corp Brands
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!
7gypsies Lace Trimmings
Wood Shape Leaves: Peachy Cheap
Chipboard Frame: Gina’s Designs
Rinea Foiled Paper: Lavender, Ebony, and Silver
Black and White Photo 4×6″

Placement Tip 
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.

Cutting and Prep Guide

Black and Ivory Chicken Wire Paper Frames: Trimmed to 11×11″ with 4×6″ center cut out.

Black and Ivory Sonnet Rev Paper Frames: Trimmed to 6×8″ with 4×6″ center cut out.
2 Ebony Foiled Paper Frames: Trimmed to 5×7 with 3.5×5 cut out

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.

 Ticking Flower
Step 1: Cut a 1×6″ strip of Ticking Fringe.
Step 2:Secure thread in end of ticking with a knot and a couple tiny stitches.
Step 3:Pleat ticking by 1/4” folds. Run thread through all the layers, 1/8” from the edge of the ticking.
Step 4: Fan out flower so that it creates 3/4″ of a circle. Secure thread with knot and couple tiny stitches.
Layout Assembly:
Step 1: Center photograph on black cardstock.

 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.

 Step 3. Slip lace under accordion corners, only glue the edge of the lace that is under the frame. Center Ebony Frame over chicken wire. Adhere with foam tape.
 Step 4. Add Architextures Swirls so one edge is under the lace. Place Sonnet frame on
top of Ebony frame with foam tape.
 Step 5. Slip Architextures wings under lace. Adhere Mixed Media Origins wings to Script frame with foam tape. Adhere second ebony frame to script frame with two layers of foam tape. Arrange ticking flower under upper right corner of ebony frame.
 Step 6. Add wood shapes and foiled paper flowers to upper corner, slipping petals under an accordion corner or between wood shapes.
Step 7. Adhere chipboard to Script frame. Place fussy cut rose and leaves on ebony frame corner. Scatter foiled paper flowers between layers.
Add title or journaling and display with pride!
