As Requested Framed Bears

I had a few requests from you, to see the Cross Stitch
in it's frame.

The frame was a very dark brown wood, with a panel
of gold on the narrow internal edge.
I gave it a coat of white Gesso and then did my crackle
paint effect, with 2 shades of blue acrylic paint and some glue.

There is a lot of detail on the background of the picture, 
as they are supposed to be sitting on a bed against a pillow.
So the bits that look like creases, are actually stitches to
give the effect of creases.
My ironing is not that bad!!Lol!!

I cut some board to fit into the frame,
and to attach the fabric to. I ironed the fabric on the back 
and then centred it onto the board. I stretched the fabric
on all 4 sides and taped it to the board. 

Then put it into the frame. 
I screwed in 2 rings into the back of the frame.
I then put 2 runs of wire through the rings.
Job done!!!

It's now on the wall in the spare bedroom.

So there we are, another job done off my list!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and
to leave your lovely messages.

They are all read and appreciated.

Big hugs,

Hi Carol

Absolutely stunning and beautiful. I saw this kit made up and on show in one of our local craft stores a few years ago .. .. I fell in love with it then and still love it now I have seen yours completed.

Well done on getting it finished and crossing another job off the list!

Hope all is well with you.
