WOW Blog Post, Paper Wrapping

Hi, My WOW Chipboard Blog post to end the month is this layout "You" which I used
RWL100011 Ornamental Circle Bird Frame. to create this "You" layout.

How I created this Birdy Circle.
  1. First Emboss the frame in light brown embossing powder, then distress with a file set.
  2. Colour the birds in Liquid Pearls in a swirling action.
  3. When dry, dry brush a bit of white gesso over all of the chipboard.
  4. Rip pieces of  muslin fabric into 1cm stripes and wrap around the circle, tieing as you go. Then distress the fabric with a file.(by running the file against the fabric).
  5. Rip pieces of pattern paper into approx 1cm strips and wrap loosely around parts of the circle, attach as you go.
  6. Add some tissue tape to parts of the flourishes and cut off the excess.
  7. Cut a piece of pattern paper in a circle a little bit bigger than the Bird Circle and distress around the edges, then attached to a back ground paper.
  8. Mount your photo, adhere to the paper circle, then attach the Bird Circle on top.
  9. Add flowers, bunting and pearls to the circle.
  10. Add title and bling it up with some Kindy Glitz.

 Add some pearls for the eyes.
