Pam Bray Designs: A Girl With Flair

Sharing creative ideas through mixed media, stamps, embossing powder, charms, chipboard, stencils and designer collections

Hi! Today I am sharing with you my upcycled Shadowbox Frame using Authentique Refreshed Collection. I don’t know about you but I am ready for Spring! When the bluebirds, robins, and cardinals start showing up to start building their nest I know it won’t be long.

I found this gem of a shadowbox frame at my local thrift store. I knew right away that I would create a home dĂ©cor piece. Authentique Refreshed was the perfect collection for my project because who doesn’t love to “Dance in the Rain”!

I began by painting my shadowbox frame navy blue and allowed it to dry. Add pattern paper to the inside along with the matted “Dance in the Rain” journal card. Fussy cut border; adhere to the bottom of inside of frame along with a matching piece of pattern paper and circle sticker that was placed on a pop dot.

Photo 1: Paint chipboard circle with white paint; dry. Adhere paper doily to top and place on frame.
Photo 2: Die cut petal from pattern paper. Form heart; adhere to top of doily.
Photo 3: Adhere circles to top of heart.
Photo 4: Fussy cut bird and place on circles with pop dots.

Add another die cut petal to top of frame along with bow, flower, leaves and berries.

Layer circle sticker to circle paper; add to front of frame with a pop dot.

I hope you run out to your local thrift stores to see what you can upcycle for your home or maybe to give as a gift. Pam
