I was fortunate enough to be sent a Stack Art Kit from Stampendous Stamps. The moment I opened the package I knew what this kit is perfect for, miniature picture frames! They fit the little photos that always come with the school pictures, the ones that I have a million of and never know what to do with. I figured I could decorate them to match my work space.

DecoArt Chalky Finish Paint in Everlasting
DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint in Spa Blue
Start by painting the bigger and smaller frame a couple of coats of the Chalky Finish Paint. The paint was a little thick and left brush lines, which gave a bit of texure. Let it dry. Use one of the larger stamps, and the clear embossing ink on the larger part of the frame. Sprinkle with the gold embossing powder and heat it with the heat tool. Then put the edges of the frame on the clear embossing ink and emboss with the gold. Repeat on all sides.
Paint one of the hearts Spa Blue. On the egde, emboss with gold. For the other heart, emboss the whole heart with gold.
For the smaller frame, I put thin washi tape on it to make stripes, and used a different stamp, embossed in gold as well. I peeled off the washi tape and then painted the edges with the Spa Blue acrylic paint.
The kit comes with peel-and-stick adhesive to stick the whole project together. It’s so easy and turned out so cute.
I can’t wait to make more of these for the holidays!
