Mixed media photo frame

Hi Friends

Shubhra here today with some more inspiration for you to try the DMC frosted sugar powder, crystal ice cubes and Sparkling dust. With so much awespiration on the blog I'm sure you all had a lovely weekend, and if you haven't already tried these, its never too late you know !

About the products - Crystal ice cubes are small cube like beads that literally give the effect of ice. You can use them as is which is white or mix inks to give them a color. They can be used to create miniatures, mixed media art, embellishments etc. Frosted sugar powder is a coarse powder with grain like texture , they look like snow flakes when used on a flower. Sparkling dust is a super soft silken finish glittery powder that instantly adds shimmer and glow to projects.
Having said that I move on to my project for today which is a 3-in-1 photo frame, I have used the products mentioned in the simplest way to attain beautiful textures.

 I have used black chalk paint on an originally white photo frame. With some fussy cut images and flowers I covered the first and last frame along with die cuts. There are some dusty attic chippies too , I find them delicate and beautiful to work with, Using chipboard embellishments from Prima I added some more dimension to my project. The brick wall texture was created with modelling paste mixed with red paint and brick stencil and crystal ice cubes on top. The fussy cut flowers on first frame are shimmered with sparkling dust look absolutely amazing, flowers are topped with frosted sugar powder. I have used ice crystals on the third frame near the sentiment chipboard embellishment and the phrase believe has some frosted sugar powder coated. The flowers have been sprinkled with sparkling dust.

Check out few more pictures below for some detailing

Look at the textured brick effect created with modelling paste and crystal ice cubes. The ornate chipboard is from Dusty attic, and metal embellishment from Prima.
