Crafty Home Decor Made with Love

Hi Everyone, I have a quick and fun piece of home decor to share with you today using the Crafty Alley Kit for May which is available for purchase HERE (only 1 or 2 left I believe). This was the first project that I completed when I saw this awesome kit. I created it using the scalloped chipboard piece; which I first painted (2 coats) with my Adirondack Dabber in Snow Cap. I then painted the surface with Distress Crackle Paint in Rock Candy and set it aside to dry over night. The next day I sprayed it with Moonlight Glimmer Mist so that the detail of the crackling effect would be more visible and give it a more aged appearance. The May kit comes with an entire roll of Magic Mesh. I added a strip of it behind the photo. The photo itself is matted on some of the patterned paper from the Vintage Findings collection (also included in the kit). I Glimmer Misted the 2 Prima Flowers from the kit in Olive Vine and Moonlight, added a fabric flower and 3 gems from the kit. The trim is from the Crafty Alley Shop; which can be purchased separately.
Here's what I used from the kit for this project:
Scalloped Chipboard Square/Rectangle
Magic Mesh
2 Prima Flowers
Vintage Finding Patterned Paper (photo mat)
Hinge Clip
Garment Pin
