Spicy Frame

Last week I shared a frame I made using Club Scrap Moroccan Spice kit - Live Live with a Little Spice.  Today I wanted to share the directions for making that frame.

1. Sand all of the edges of the wood frame.

2. Apply an even coat of book binding or other glue to the frame; position the cardstock and let it dry completely.

3. Cut away the excess cardstock from the edges and the center of the frame.

4. Again, sand all of the edges.

5. Apply Gothic Purple StazOn ink to the inside and outside edge.

6. Trim then fussy cut the large Moroccan tiles from the pattern cardstock.  Apply Spiced Chai StazOn ink to all of the edges of each tile.

7. Play with the tile placement until you get them just so.    TIP - When you get a layout you like, take a quick photo of it to help recreate it - helps when you go to glue them all down!

8. Glue each of the tiles down.  Once dry, trim off the excess.

9. Now fussy cut all of the small tiles and apply the same ink to the edges of these tiles.

10. Glue the small tiles down to the frame.  Once dry, trim away the excess.

11.  Sand the edges where the tiles were added.

12. Apply a layer of Crystal Lacquer to each of the tiles.  This will give them a lovely gloss and add dimension at the same time.  It's amazing how much this changes the look of the tiles.  Let the lacquer dry completely.

13. Stamp sentiment, mat and adhere it to the frame.  Add additional embellishments as desired.

And your frame is ready to enjoy!
