This is the frame that was on my desk on Wednesday, given a coat of gilder's paste in Rich Gold, some Timeworn aging and some more gilder's paste in Patina.
I filled each "porthole" with a piece of Core'dinations whitewash card, embossed with a swirly folder and lightly sanded back. The embellishments are moulded out of paper clay and were part of my final assemblage item for the Timeworn Techniques course. They have been painted in acrylic paint to get a faux ivory appearance (you'll have to sign up for the course to find out how - I'm not going to reveal Andy Skinner's secrets!). The idea of using Pledge Multi-Surface Wax (formerly known as Klear polish) as a sealer/polish on the embellies is entirely my own, though, so I can share it with you. It gives a lovely soft sheen, I just love it.
I'm so enjoying my few days leave, relaxing and catching up on my crafting. I do hope you enjoyed visiting my blog - thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon!
