Halloween Pumpkins Altered Frame

Today I have a fun Halloween altered frame project. Need a bit of fall decor? This cute frame comes together in less than an hour...including dry time!


To make this frame, you'll need a few items from the G&P store:
Embossing Enamel Powder: Mossy Glen
Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Mustard Seed

Other supplies:
misc. frame (this would be so cool in a Bubble Frame, too! Tune in next week - I actually use one!)
scrap of patterned paper
scrap of fuzzy fibers

Your first step: color the Accent pieces with the 3D gels. *Let dry.

*To add texture to the 'enameled' pieces: let dry until the pieces are tacky. Using a scrap piece of paper, gently dab the semi-wet surface, pulling off small amounts of the gel. Repeat until you like the texture. Let dry.

Using your finger (or a paintbrush) apply the Satin Gold 3D Gel to the raised parts of the frame. LOVE this subtle gilded look!



These carved pumpkins have hilarious faces! They would be even funnier with googley eyes!

When the frame and all of the pieces are dry, lay the house on the scrap piece, trace under the house. Ink up the area and emboss with Mossy Glen. 


Using a foam blender, add the moon using Mustard Seed. Attach all of the Accents and fiber using the Glastique.

That's it! 

Is it too early to start on Christmas cards?

Inky hugs,
Angi

This is so awesome and so spooky. I love the gold accents on the frame and the texture on the piccolos.
