Photo Holder

You may have heard or seen that I was recently asked to join the design team over at Scrappy Chic in Livonia, MI.  I am SO excited and honored to be a part of this team!!  Scrappy Chic is the place to be for crops and classes, not to mention all of the AMAZING scrappy products you will find there!!  Check out the calendar on the web-site for all sorts of fun activities.
I have been working on my projects for March and wanted to share this cute photo holder inspired by a very creative friend of mine, Dee Dee.  You can check out her amazingness at UmWow Studio.
The base on this photo holder is a scrap piece of 2x4 that I stained with Distress Stain-Walnut Stain.  When the stain was dry I twisted some wire and inserted it into 2 holes I drilled into the top of the block.  Then I covered it with Kaiser Craft’s Basecoat Collection-Weathered and topped of with a coat of Distress Crackle Paint-Clear Rock Candy.  When that dried I swiped some Distress Ink-Walnut Stain over the block so the ‘crackle’ gave it an aged look. 
Next I took some Maya Road Tutu Tulle ribbon and sprayed with with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist-Burlap and hot glued it around the block…just like a tutu!  I used May Arts Chevron ribbon-pink around the top and tied a bow.
Of course the fun part is embellishing and you can do so many things with this block.  I went girly and made some roses out of MME Miss Caroline Howdy Doody-Happy.  I made the flower center with Liquid Pearls-White and Petal Pink.  Wired some leaves I cut with a Tim Holtz die and covered them with Stickles-Crystal.  These I glued all around the bottom the the wire photo holder.
