Webster's & Maya Road Frame

Since I have boys and boy dogs and a boy husband. I don't get to use purple that much. OR so I thought until Webster's came out with this Hollywood Vogue Line last CHA. It's funny b/c I knew I would looooove the houndstooth print but was nervous b/c of all the purple. Well, I have TWO sheets left of this line!!!!!!!!! That is how much I used it and Webster's is beyond generous with their product. So let's just say, that's a lot of projects! So when I got these photos developed of owen and this purple bucket, I had to run with it and this frame. We were collecting pine cones for Christmas crafts and bird feeders with the peanut butter and bird seed this winter.

The banners and letters are Maya Road Chipboard. I painted the bottom banner off white and then inked it purple. Covered the next layer in patterned paper and then finished off the letters with lots of layers of Plaid paint, Plaid crackle medium, glossy accents and more purple ink. Not to mention the frame is crackled as well. I love using non traditional colors to crackle. the photo is mounted with Core'dinations Gemstone cardstock in black.
You can click on it to make it larger and get a better look. I am using my P&S these days b.c my lens for my Nikon is broken :(


Here are some close up of the letters and the crackle medium. I used my sponge dauber and purple Stampin' Up! Ink and applied it and then wiped it off so the crackles picked up the purple.


After all of that, as a finishing touch, I sprayed it with Maya Road Mists. I LOVE the iridescent look of this color.



Have a great rest of your weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
