Creating small pieces of framed art for my home is my favorite type of DIY project. It’s a simple way to add a punch of color and whimsy to any space in your home. Using the new Vicki Boutin Mixed Media line is a great way to get your projects started!
I love the look of handwritten, watercolored words but I definitely don’t have the skills to paint one myself. A great workaround, is to use an electronic die cut machine to create an 8x10 frame of brush script words. Let the cut file do the work for you! Simply use art crayons and a waterbrush to create the background sheet. Layer the cut words over this background and there you have it - faux watercolored words in a beautiful brush script!
Add a swish of gold detail by using a paintbrush and a flick of Vicki Boutin glaze to underline the words. Next, sprinkle gold flakes and coarse glitter over the glaze to adhere. This creates a beautiful sparkly effect that highlights the words and frame.
Creating seasonal decor pieces like this Love frame are both easy and fun! It’s a great way to try out a new medium. The Vicki Boutin Mixed Media line is full of wonderful art products that will make your projects shine!
