Fall Leaves Altered Frame

Hi wonderful people!!! Our theme this week with Stampendous/Dreamweaver is Fall Fun!!! What better way to have fun than to play with embossing paste and sprays,lol. 
I began my little 6 x 6 frame by first cutting three pieces of mat board and gluing them together. 
Once they were dry I slathered the top with a very generous layer of Dreamweaver Crackle Embossing Paste. (Needless to say it will take a few hours for it to dry if you get as thick as I have it.)
Once it is dry spray first with Mango Lemonade Mist and  then with Blue Lagoon Mist. 
Allow this to dry completely!!!!
Apply Picket Fence Distress Paint.
Allow it to dry. 
Once dry apply Dreamweaver Metallic Copper Embossing Paste using a palette knife and Cathedral Window Small Stencil. 
Allow the embossing paste to dry completely.
Using Wild Honey and a blending tool go over top of prepared mat board. 
Set to one side.
Stamp two of Stampendous Jumbo Leaves to white paper with black ink. 
Color with Copic Markers. 
Fussy cut out. 
Add 3/4" black mat board strips to the front of prepared mat board to form frame.
Add fussy cut leaves to center of frame. 
Add metal corners. 
And a fun twine bow with a Glue Dot. 
I sure hope I have inspired you to get your Stampendous/Dreamweavers Embossing Paste, Mists and Stamps out and make yourself some fall fun. Hugs Pammejo
