One Down, Countless To Go!

This frame was started some time ago. I recently had a friend mention that she needed to finish some projects before starting any more. She got me to thinking about all the projects I have sitting around here that I need to finish up. So, yesterday I worked on a few. This is one that I completed. As some of you know, my first love (in the crafting world) is painting. However, it lacks the instant gratification that paper crafting offers. What I mean by that is that it takes much longer to complete a painted project than a card.

This project combined two of my loves, painting and paper crafting. I painted the frame black and the ghost white (he is made of wood). I modge podged a patterned paper on the frame. After it dried I lightly sanded the edges. Several months later I added details to the ghost. The "boo" and stars are made from card stock. I used some fun wire to connect them to the ghost. Then I super glued the ghost onto the frame. I am very excited how this project turned out. I am thinking I will make some Christmas frames using the same method.

I have a few more projects that I are almost complete. That means I should have more than 2 posts next week!

Have a fun filled weekend!


  1. You go, girl! The frame looks very cute. That's exactly the type of thing I've got inside my cupboards...just waiting to be designed!

  2. How cuuutttteee is he?? I love your project. I just might case it for a snowman holding snowflakes. What do you think? Thanks for posting your whimsy work.
    Stay well,
