Not very often do I get a picture with me and the whole family in it, cos someone has to take the photo, right?!

So, when I set the timer and placed my camera balancing precariously on the rocks down at the beach, I wanted to capture a nice family shot on a glorious sunny day….and I did it! it turned out terrific and I loved it so much I knew I had to FRAME IT!

I chose to use the decorative MDF frame, with a heap of prima flowers to decorate it!

First thing I did was spray the background MDF with Glimmermist in Turquoise


I made some larger ‘flicks’ and ‘splats’ on the second coat to give it a bit more dimension


Then I adhered an inked piece of Bo Bunny paper on the base.


Then I put my photo where I wanted it, and adhered a misted circle frame


The next step was to start decorating. I chose flowers and embellishments in complimenting colours, like kraft, cream, brown and teal. I also misted a flourish to compliment the background frame.


I just layered on more and more flowers to really decorate the cluster in the corner. I also sliced out a couple of edge pieces of the circle so that the ledge would fit back in place!


Final step was to put on the ledge and some floral chipboard pieces, then accentuate with a black pen for defintion


I added some Prima pebbles to the flower centres for more depth and dimension
