Hi Friends

Anita here, with another inspirational project for you. And I just loved making this one. All the products used here are very very precious to me.

This is a photo frame and I have altered it completely with lot of distressing, stamping and misting.
The focal point here is the very beautiful Tim Holtz tiny lantern --Idea-ology Mini Lantern 1.375 that actually has a battery and glows when plugged in. I just fell in love with it, the moment, I got it. It is so vintage!!!
This post is picture heavy so please be patient.

Another view-the lantern is not glowing

The Glowing Lantern
.Isn't it very cosy and romantic!!!

Now lets have a look at all the supplies that I,ve used to make this.

I pasted papermania papers on a photo frame and distressed it with Distress inks-Old paper, vintage photo and aged Mahogany. The I used Masking from Tattered angles screens and  I stamped swirls from Inkadinkado-wedding collection and Hero arts -Script stamp. with Pumice Stone and Vintage Photo. This was followed by some misting from Tattered angles. That gave a nice shimmery look to the whole surface.
Now comes, dies----Extreme right corner has the famous Cherry Lynn Wedding Vows, Tim Holtz Weathered Clock, Cherry Lynn-Fanciful Flourish, Cherry Lynn- French Pastry Doiley, and  Leaves from Marianne. and the Lovely fence is from Magnolia.
The verse is from Quote Sticker Stack. The post is from Spellbinders-Elegant posts and the leaves are  Leaves from MArianne. The lantern label is the new spellbinder-Decorative Labels 8 embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folders-Swiss dots. The center frame is another CB folder.
All the dies have been cut in the Sizzix Big Shot MAchine and at Crafters Corner you get it at the best price.
