The Bride in Issue 85

Scrapbook Magazine Issue 85 hit stands last week and this is my layout.
 A close-up of the tiny flowers tucked into the folded corner.
I used a lot of Prima and Kaisercraft embellishments as I wanted to make the page as soft and feminine as I could.

Chicken Wire {Vintage} Frame

This past summer I picked up this vintage wooden frame from an estate sale.   I had a roll of chicken wire left over from a previous project so I knew exactly what I wanted to make.
I used Annie Sloan chalk paint (Linen).  There was no prep work needed, I just started painting the original frame.  It took three coats of paint and took only two hours to completely finish.  I love how this paint adheres to the wood, it's beautiful to work with.
Here is the end result.  Simple and beautiful.  I added a brass chain to the back as my hanger and some mini clothes pins to hang the photos. 
 A great place for me to hang family photos in my bedroom.
