Destined to be together... Wooden frame


Hi folks!  I am delighted to share with you my latest creation using Sam Poole's lush crafting goodies.  The whole piece has been made using the fabulously priced Wooden frame that I covered with papers from the Prima Fairy Belle paper pad.  
I die cut the photo, of my twins, and the scalloped layer using Nestabilities, distressed and inked the edges.  I cut around a portion of the fairy ballerina's dress and tucked the photo behind. 
 I had some strips of pink pearls in my stash that I curled and placed on the paper and overlapped the photo with them in the bottom right corner.  
The patterned paper has a beautiful chandelier in the top right which I drew over with my quickie glue pen and glittered. I also added glitter to the ballerina's dress. 
 I used a thicker glue pen to write 'Ben & Isabelle' and used a darker glitter on that.  I painted the wooden bird on a branch and the Wooden leaves with Pearl Adirondack Metallic acrylic paint which gave a wonderful texture as well as glorious sheen.  I adhered the painted wooden pieces to the frame using my hot melt glue gun, snipping one of the branches from the top left and placing  near the words at the bottom (IYKWIM). 
 For the flowers I layered up some Prima hydrangea petals squeezed a large blob of dimensional glue gel in the centres and tipped on some seed beads and glitter. The words at the bottom are from a little K&Co 'words-to-go' box that I think I will be dipping into forever... there's 100's in there!  I finished off the piece with some punched and glittered butterflies that I positioned here and there.
Ciao for now!
