Windows of Paris!

Last weekend I went to a crop... I took my Dixie Belle Paint - Buttercream and Dixie Belle Van Dyke Glaze, they came in handy when I saw this bare window frame I just could not resist using them.
 
 
If you know my art, you know I love PARIS!
 
 
The Window Shadow Frame is pencil thin.  I painted the bare  frame with 2 coats of  Dixie Belle Paint - Buttercream

 
Arrange charms, chipboard and wood pieces in the frame.

 
Once the frame was dry apply Dixie Belle Van Dyke Brown Glaze to distress the frame.
 
 
Apply pattern paper to the back board of the window with glue stick.  With tacky glue attach the frame of the to the backboard the paper has been glued to!  Use clothes pins to hold in place until dry! 


 
While the glue dries, ink and heat emboss wood crown and fluer de lis with Pirate Black Embossing Powder!

 
Assemble items using tacky glue!

 
The flowers are Petaloo Paintables, I used spray mist to color the white flowers the perfect pink!

 
Attach items inside each frame and to the frame!

 
Add Dew Drops and flowers and other embellishments to cover holes on charms!

  1. This is so sweet - I love Paris, too! I always have trouble embossing metal pieces - what do you use for embossing ink? Thanks for sharing, Lyneen!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
