[re]designed Frame by Michelle Rossibell

Today, we wanted to share an adorable new wall decor project with our [re]aders, by Michelle Rossibell!  She takes us step by step through the process to turn an outdated frame into something beautiful for your home. Let's see what she did...

This particular project uses a 12 x 12 frame, but an 11 x 14 or 8 x10 could work too. It all depends on how large your transfer is and if you want to use the entire image or just part of it.

Michelle used the bicycle image from the new [re]design transfer set, Bike Rides. This set contains four separate images and like we mentioned before, you can cut out some of the designs based on the size of your project. Apply the transfer directly to the glass or on a solid colored piece of paper if you dont want to see through the glass.

This is the [re]design mould, Everleigh Flourish. These designs can be used individually or together for one large unique design. Michelle used the flourishes from the set to add to her frame.

You will also need some paper clay to use in the moulds to create your appliques. This handy bucket is wonderful for keeping your clay from drying out. And when it's gone, keep the bucket for soaking your brushes or for mixing art mediums, like paints...

Start creating your appliques and glue them to the frame with your favorite strong glue. The moulds can be glued down while they are still wet (right from the mould). It also helps to apply them this way if you are adding them to a curved surface...

Once you have them all glued down, add a primer. If you happen to be using a really dark color, like black for instance, you can skip the primer step. But you will want to do this if you are working with a lighter color.

Then paint the frame in your color of choice. Michelle used a heat gun to speed up the drying process so she can continue working without waiting for paint to dry.

Next step, add a bit of the [re]design wax to bring out the pretty designs of the flourishes and add another layer of interest to the project...

Our [re]design wax is creamy,  highly pigmented and dries permanently-no sealer needed! Use your fingers or a wax brush to apply. A little bit goes a really long way...and we have a variety of  other beautiful colors  to choose from.
