What's Up Crafty?

What's Up Crafty is brought to you this go round by me Karen!!  This is my very first post of this type so please bare with me!! I have been working on a wall display for each of my six children, three down, three to go.  I hope you will enjoy the project!!

This my sweet Abigail! She is #5 of 6!! She is a spunky 3 year old with tons of personality.

This is what I started with.  A variety of wooden frames, pics, lace and flowers. ( I have a love affair with Prima) The wooden frames I picked up for under $2 (on sale). They take mist or paint very well, but I want to have some continuity with this set so I painted my frame with white acrylic paint. I like both pictures but decided to go with the black and white so that I could use more color with my flowers...

After the paint dried it was a little too white for me so I used my chalk ink to distress the frame a little. I added a chunky piece of lace on the inside edge just to add some more detail.  I started laying out my flowers next. I always start with the largest and work my way to the smallest flowers and details. I added the photo to the back with washi tape so they could be changed out if you desired.  I could have easily added a piece of ribbon to the top to hang it but these hang nicely by themselves.
Here are the 3 I have completed thus far. Thanks for looking. Karen
