Stopping in to share another project I finished over the weekend, doing some "upcycling" and using beautiful ribbon and bling
from The Vintage Rose Emporium.
I have had a beautiful , shimmery fabric covered 4x6 tabletop oval frame for 20+ years, and the braided trim around it had not only faded, but had started to fall off.
To add new life to it, I chose to go with a
"Phantom of the Opera" theme.
After removing the original braided ribbon, and replacing it with new (VRE) I stayed with the fabric that was still in tact, adding black lace and shimmery red ribbon from (VRE) in a tufted fashion.
I removed the glass from the frame, and added texture embossed black cardstock, emphasized with some Perfect Pearl powder, and used this as the background base for mounting my die cut
I then finished the design with adding bling in the flat tufted recesses of the lace and ribbon, and further embellished the bottom of the frame with a large red rose (VRE) and coordinating tiny roses, some die cut paper leaves, a small torn piece of vintage sheet music, and a die cut music note bar to the top of the frame.
