I must apologise for the quality of my picture, I think the fact that the decoupage image was already dark, and then it’s surrounded by a very white frame has made it look flat inside.
Anyhow I made a Picture Frame for my Daughter’s Geek Shelf! Maybe this isn’t as geeky as Dr. Who and Supernatural etc. but she is a huge Bagpuss Fan, and shares the same name as the little girl in the Bagpuss tales. So I bought some Bagpuss Decoupage when I saw it. I was very disappointed in it though as I said it’s VERY dark. Not enough contrast in the image I think.
So I decoupaged it up, you can just about see it, because of the white showing around the edges of the decoupage. I didn’t notice that when I was putting it together or I would have gone round with a dark pen, but then I guess it would have looked even flatter! It’s not quite as dark in real life!
The frame was made by following a shadow box tutorial, which I cannot now lay my hands on (just call me Mrs. Uber Unorganised), and then covered with beautiful fabric paper, which glittery flourishes all over it. The flowers are metal and they went really well I thought with the silver mirri flourish corner diecut from Tattered Lace.
