Summer Fun Frame

Hello, my blog friends, happy Sunday! I am so happy to share a great news
with you that I just join the design team of Simon Says Stamp and Show.
I'll be playing the fun challenges every Monday and hope you will join me.
I'd also like to share a project I made for Faber-Castell. I have taken many
photos of kids at their summer activities and I am going to use this frame 
for one of those photos.  
Here are some steps to show you how I made this frame.  First, I covered this
8" x 10" chipboard frame with wrapping tissue using Gel Medium then colored
the frame with Gelatos.
After drying the colored background with the heat tool, I used modeling paste
and stencil to make some dimensional images and I colored those images
with Stamper's Big Brush Pens.
I also used stamps and Stamper's Big Brush Pens to add some lines and dots 
randomly to make this frame more interesting and colorful.
Paper Craft Crayons are great to make texture and shade.

The last step is using PITT artist pen to outline the images then applying Glaze
on the images to add a beautiful sheen.

Here are some close-up photos.


I share my project at: Creative Every Day, Paint Party Friday and
Artists in Blogland - Show & Tell Saturday. For the supply list of this project,
please check Faber-Castell.
I hope you get a chance to use these great coloring products and make
something fun for this summer. Thank you so much for stopping by. 
Have a wonderful day! 
Meihsia ^_^

  5. Hello Meihsia
    I am so pleased for you on your Dt position; congratulations.
    What a wonderful frame, the Gelatos give imbued a vibrancy and your colour palette has such a festive feel, it is going to be interesting to see the completed page.
    Mixed media is where we can let go and get dirty, not that you appear to have got much paint/pen on your lovely hands Meihsia; unlike me!
    You have designed this in a most beautiful way, I am loving the result you have obtained.
