For this month's Flamingo Four, we were given:
I decided to create a frame with a bit of a "textured" look to it. I painted the frame with a base coat of yellow paint, and let it dry. Then I used the snowflake mask across the face of the frame and applied the pink paint to it. After that layer dried, it was a bit too bright for me, so I watered down some apricot colored paint and did a light coat across the whole thing, then follwed that up with a watered down whitewash coat as well. Once I had it toned down, I decided to cut the stick off of the paper flower and adhered the "Life is in Bloom" saying to the front. I adhered that to the frame and tucked the "Beautiful" metal embellishment behind the flower to create a little cluster in the bottom corner. Now, all I need to do is find the right picture to put in it!
