How to Make a Beautiful, Mixed Media Bracket Frame!

It’s Friday! You know what that means??? Time to create. Yay!  Here’s a wonderful idea to start your weekend color-filled, sparkly and creative. Have fun.

Gather supplies: Gesso, Tim Holtz Distress Stains, Diva Mists, Prima Flowers,
paint brush, sponge for texture and of course, your frame. 


Cover frame with Gesso.  Allow to dry. 


Dip sponge in Gesso and sponge onto frame to add texture.
Allow drying time.


I used distress stain to color a few of the flowers.


Or use mists to change and enhance color of flowers.
Set flowers aside to dry. 


Next, I misted the frame.  Allow to dry or use your heat gun to
speed up drying time.  Next, I stamped the frame in several places, using a background
lattice stamp.


Add bling!  I also dipped my sponge in the Gesso again to add
a bit more texture in white atop the painted frame. 
Add flowers and butterfly.  I used a strong wet adhesive along
with some glue dots for added hold. 
I added a bit of Stickles to add more sparkle.
See the squiggly line.  Just squeeze and draw!


Allow frame to dry completely overnight.

Supplies Used: (not pictured frame(picked up at Michaels), stamps, stencils, flowers)
