Meet my new friend, Edith. You can see her and all her friends at Fairy Davis. As I mentioned yesterday

Fairy Davis and Friends is a site created and ran by the talented Tammy Tutterow. She has been gracious enough to let me contribute some images, and I’m excited to be a part of this new site!

I made a home for Edith in a cute, altered 4.5 inch square frame I bought at Michaels. Her photo is 2.5×2.5 inches, printed on a tan cardstock base and sprayed with a crystal clear glaze (Krylon).

After attaching the image to a piece of cardboard for mor durability/thickness, I set it aside.

Next, I used the Therm-o-Web mounting adhesive to attach the Pink Paislee Paper to the frame. I trimmed edges with my craft knife.

Using a variety of my vintage-inspired stamps, I stamped the frame with Distress Ink in Walnut Stain. Then, I inked the edges using one of my colorbox inks.

I attached some Basic Grey fibers around the inner frame and then cut a one-inch thick peice of a striped Pink Paislee Paper. I attached it to the frame in the upper corner, after inking the edges with the Distress Ink.

I topped it off with a couple gold leaves and a K & Co embelishment. Finally, I put the photo of Edith in the frame. And, viola! a cool, inexpensive wall decoration! I plan to make a group of three frames with photos of some of Edith’s friends, and hang them in a vertical row on the wall. In the meantime, you can purchase this frame (including the image of Edith) on Etsy. Click here to check out my Etsy store.

Well, what are you waiting for? Head on over to Fairy Davis and get started living the fabulous vintage style!
