Mixed Media Project: Framed Gold Old Book Paper Flower

Today I have an exciting news to share with you all 🙂 I am officially a member of the Happy Little Stampers – Mixed Media Challenge team. Super excited to share more mixed media projects with you all!

HLS Mixed Media challenge July 2016

And here’s my first project for this challenge: framed old page paper flowers. I used a old hymnal book for the flower and I found the shadow box frame from a local antique store.


The shadow box frame is rustic green and I added some Metallic Royal Gold paint on it using old rag. Then I cut out the petals out of old book pages. I found this giant flower tutorial on YouTube and following that tutorial to make this flower but in smaller size (about 5 inches in diameter).

Before I put them together, I added some Vintage Distress Ink on each of the petals. Then I assemble the flower using glue gun. After that, I sprayed the Royal Gold (I have mixed with water and alcohol in a spray bottle).

It is all done 🙂 I hope you are inspired today to recycle old things become new things and link up with us at HLS – Mixed Media July Challenge.
