Check out my new frame!  I hope you enjoy - the best thing about it is the Mod Podge.

FolkArt 2oz. Sky Blue, 465
FolkArt 2oz. Fresh Foliage, 954
FolkArt 2oz. Dark Brown, 416
Mod Podge Gloss, CS11201
Colorblok Friendly Forest Paper Stack and Accessories
Craft Glue
Candle (preferably a white taper)
Scrap piece of paper and ruler
Scissors or a craft knife and mat

Plaid Wood Surfaces - Frames Square 96014
Plaid Wood Surfaces - Letter Packs - Mixed Up 78043

-Use the scrap piece of paper and ruler to make a template of the inside of the frame. You are going to need to do this to cut your Friendly Forest paper to fit. Set aside.
-Basecoat inside of the frame with Fresh Foliage. Allow to dry completely.
-Basecoat the outside and wood edging of the frame with Sky Blue. Also paint the letters for the name you would like to spell. Allow to dry completely.
-Rub the candle on random parts of the frame that you would like distressed.
-Paint the outside and wood edging of the frame with Dark Brown. Paint two coats to cover the Sky Blue completely.
-While the above is drying, use the template you made in Step 1 to cut a piece of paper to fit the inside of the frame. Use either scissors or a craft knife and mat to cut the paper out.
-Once the frame is dry, sand in random spots where you applied wax. Sand more for a more distressed look. The paint should come off easily where you applied wax.
-Use the Mod Podge to affix the paper to the inside of the frame.
-Completely coat the entire frame in Mod Podge and allow to dry.
-Affix the letters and embellishments with craft glue.
-Allow project to dry for at least 24 hours before using.

Cute! I didn't know you could rub a candle on a frame to make it look distressed.  Smiley
