Lynda's Easy Project

Today's project is an easy one...and can be tweaked to just about any color scheme you might have!  I started with the Creative PaperClay product and molded the daisy's, allowing to dry for a day or so before I painted them!  I flipped them over about 12 hours in to the dry time to allow for the other side to dry as well.  One thing I am working on now is getting my creations to dry flat - as I get something that works for me I will make sure to let you know!  
It took a day or two for the drying to finish up, normally I will work on one part - and then will finish up things a day or two later!  I had bought the frame from a local "dollar store", which fits the picture I wanted to put in there PERFECTLY!  The colors I chose goes with my altered cereal box container found here and sits on top of my computer desk so I can look at it every day!  
After the clay had finished drying, I painted the 2 daisies
with Radiant Pearls paint, and then embossed with clear embossing powder to achieve the glossy effect!  I wrapped the two colors of ribbon around the 2 edges of the frame - I wanted a bit more of the yellow to come in to play than the red!  I used 2 die cut flowers and a sun punch for each of the flowers, curling up the edges of each of the petals on the flower to create visual interest!  This is one of my favorite projects, and it was so simple to do!  I can't wait to do a few more for presents, in colors that are perfect for their spaces!  This frame is "more special" because of those in the photo with me and the event we were there for!  A great time in my life - one I wouldn't change for anything! 
I hope you enjoy my project for today!  Check back in a couple of weeks for my tips on working with clay to make he pieces dry flat...  I am working on a great project - that will end up being a magnet when I am done!  I will take more pictures this time around!  
See you next time,
