CHOO CHOO... Quick Quotes and Clear Scraps

Greetings crafty friends. LeeAnn here with a collaboration post with Quick Quotes using Clear Scraps 12x12 Circle Printer Tray Frame. Let me say as soon as I saw this in the box, I knew exactly what photos I was using.

Circle Printer Tray Frame
Just a few days before my project box arrived, my daughter took my little grandson to the local Day Out with Thomas and the Friendship Tour. Little man LOVES Thomas, almost as much as he loves monster trucks, and he looked so happy that day. It was really hard to pick which photos to use, but with the help of my Selphy CP1200 printer, I was able to print not only 4x6 photos but also a 2x3 sticker for the center rectangle.

1. Lay the bottom layer out on your workspace.

 2. I then added double stick tape to the bottom layer.
 3. I removed the protector off the double stick tape and smoothed out my Quick Quotes paper from Adventure Awaits Paper Pack QQP-AD101.
 I then put the rest of the frame together meaning 2 chipboard frame layers, 1 acrylic layer and one more chipboard frame layer on top, carefully making sure they all lined up. I used Lipstick Powder Puff Chalking Ink to make the top layer Red. However, it was soaking into the chipboard and was not as bright as I wanted.
I then decided to take the top layer and cover it with a good smattering of Gesso. Once fully dry I covered with Lipstick Powderpuff Chalking ink again. When that was dry I used Beacon 3-in-1 glue to affix all layers together.

I can't wait to see this in my grandson's room. 

I will be purchasing some of these frames in the future from Clear Scraps, as they are quite easy to work with, and fun as well. 

I hope you have stuck with me this far and enjoyed my project today. 

I'll be back in a couple weeks with my next project, in the meantime please be sure to follow the blog so you are notified when we have another post.
