I initially thought I would do a crackle paint background but that isn't what happened. Sometimes there are happy accidents!! lol
I started by lightly sanding the frame. This just gets a little tooth up for the paint to attach to so that it will stay on the frame. Next I pulled out some green acrylic paint and painted the frame. While it was still wet I pulled out some white glue and painted it on top of the slightly dried (still wet) paint. Then I let it dry. I pulled out my hot air gun hoping to cause the paint/glue mixture to crackle (which it has done every other time I have done this) but this time that didn't work. So I just set it aside...for a couple of days....lol And started working on another project.
So that got me excited to work on it again and off I went. I decided that I would still make a wall hanging for my daughter's room using the goodies from the Fairyopolis Card Making Kit. Oh my goodness! This kit is loaded with stuff!! I got this kit last year. I have been using and using stuff out of it and I STILL have goodies left! And it is on sale right now in the Crafter's Companion store!!! (You had better go check it out before it is gone. Because when it is gone, it is gone forever)
I glued down the two decoupaged fairies. Then I added a grouping of flowers to the corner. After I did that I thought it looked unbalanced so I pulled out my rub-on's and found the perfect fairy and butterfly to add. Finally I added a little Crystal Stickles for sparkle and a bit of ribbon as a hanger.
Then I kept looking at it and decided to take the decoupage fairies off. It just felt to me like it was "too much". What do you think? On or off??
