Fall Laughter Frame by Jenn DuBell

Don't we all need this reminder sometimes? 
I know I do...and Jenn shared this at the perfect time! 
Thanks Jenn for this beautiful creation and so happy you are on the road to recovery! 


Hi there everyone! After having surgery and beginning my road to recovering from it I needed to create something uplifting and bright. What better way to do that than with some of Yvonne's cheery sentiment and pattern stamps! I hope you this project is uplifting for you too!

I chose the following Yvonne Blair Designed stamps from Impression Obsession.

I started with a plain wooden frame 5"X7" and painted entire surface with white gesso then dried completely.
I wanted a crackly wood grain look for the base so I used a Prima stencil and crackle paste. Let crackle paste dry for full effect.

Next,I used ink sprays in greens and golds alternating and drying in between colors.

Next, I inked up the sentiment stamp with an ombre mix of light to dark in shades of orange. I used clear embossing powder to seal this. Using green and the same orange inks I inked the pine branch several times and stamped around the sentiment. next, I placed the template for my frame where I liked and traced an outline with a pencil for a cutting reference and cut out.
Finally place the glass back into the frame and add the cut-out sentiment as you would a picture. Add jute string and floral embellishments. I also added a wood chip bird and some art stones.
As a final little shimmery touch,
I added some Deco Art Pearlizing medium with a small brush here and there and on the bird.

Thanks so much for viewing! Have a fun creative day!
Jenn
