Vintage Floral Frame

We have been having such unseasonably warm weather here, some days have been in the mid-60s... it has been amazing! Hopefully our "early Spring" doesn't just consist of these few days.

Here's a spring project with those super popular rolled roses (they were everywhere at CHA)... defiantly a big trend that I'm seeing in the blogosphere as we get closer to spring.
To Create Frame:
1) spray paint wooden frame, sand and ink with foam blender sponge
2) cover all cardboard with patterned paper
3) make seven rolled paper roses with coordinating patterned paper using Glue Dots Permanent Glue Dots and adhere to frame using Glue Dots as well
4) adhere pearl flourishes

To Create Tag:
1) stamp and ink edges of tag 
2) create rolled paper rose and adhere to tag
3) ink string on tag

All of the patterned paper here is from Melody Ross' new Soul Food collection by GCD Studios. Gorgeous stuff! The frame is one of the $1 ones from Michaels. Pearls & paint are from my stash of stuff that is several years old:) I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink to distress the frame and flowers.

Adhesive: Permanent Glue Dots
Frame: Michaels Stores Inc
Patterned Paper: Soul Food collection by GCD Studios
Paint: Krylon Cameo Pink Spray Paint
Pearls: Prima
Ink: Walnut Stain Distress Ink

Take care & if you have the warm weather now too, enjoy!
