Other Supplies

Wood frame with heart detail, Scrapbook paper, Scissors, Foam paintbrush, Photocopy of a photo, Sponge wood heart, Stencil paintbrush, Ribbons and trims, Hot glue, Silk flower, Rhinestones

Instructions

1. Use a pencil to trace the shape of the frame onto a piece of scrapbook paper.  Cut out the shape including the heart. Coat the top of the frame and the back of the paper with a layer of Mod Podge.  Position onto the frame. Smooth with a brayer or your fingers so that you have no air bubbles.  Wait 15 min and then top coat with a layer of Mod Podge.  Allow to dry for 1 hour.  Roughen up the edges with a nail file or sanding sponge.

2. Tear around the edges of the photo-copied photo to create a tattered look.  Apply a thick coat of Photo Transfer to the image side of the photo, position onto the frame transfer side down.  Using your fingers from the center-out, smooth the paper.  Wipe any extra transfer medium from the edges.  Wait 24 hours.  Remove the paper and reveal the image by wiping the paper in a circular motion with a damp sponge. Don’t press to hard.

3. Paint the heart frame insert and the wood heart with gold paint.  Using the love stencil, a stencil brush and Metallic Antique Copper paint, stencil the word love across the wood heart.  Once dry, top coat or add dimension with Extreme Glitter to both the wood heart and the heart insert.

4. Hot glue trim around the heart opening and the outer edge of the frame.  Insert the heart frame insert into the frame.  Hot glue the wood heart to the center of the heart opening. Hot glue ribbons, rhinestones and a silk flower to the front of the frame.


If your photo you are transferring has text, make sure you reverse the image when making the photocopy.
