Green & Pink Decorated Frames with Tammy Tutterow

Today I thought it would be fun to share a pair of frames that feature the same design and same technique and show how just simply changing the patterned paper gives each a different look and feel.
The first frame features a bold green damask print from Glitz Design's Scarlett collection.
After covering the frame with the green paper, I adhered a piece of Paper Layers on the left side of the frame using Claudine Hellmuth Studios Multi Medium.  Once the medium was dry, I spritzed water onto the paper and rubbed it with my finger in order to peel away portions of the Paper Layer to reveal the green patterned paper below.
As I rubbed over the Paper Layer, I rubbed until some areas dissolved completely and left other areas with peeled and frayed edges for a very vintage and distressed look.  Once the paper was dry, I rubbed over the Paper layers surface and the edges of the frame with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
To embellish the frame, I layered two flowers with two leaves along the lower left corner of the frame.  I added two flowers over the leaves.  I added letter stickers from the Titles sticker sheet to the silhouette sticker from the same sheet which I trimmed to include just the oval frame.  I tucked the sticker into my flower cluster and then added two Glitzer stickers next to each flower.
For the second frame, I used Glitz Design's Love Nest "Damask" paper to cover the frame.
As with the other frame, I applied a piece of Paper Layers on the left side and then wet the paper and removed it in areas to reveal the pattern below.  On this frame, I removed the paper so that it sort of transitioned from one pattern to the next, leaving less peeled and torn areas than I did on the green frame.  As before, I rubbed over the surface and edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I again used a cardstock sticker and two Glitzers in addition to a flower and leaves.
I adhered the cardstock sticker on this frame to a scrap piece of Paper Layers so that it would be free to lay above the surface and not be stuck down.
