Photo Display

I made this photo display for my Grandma's birthday present (too bad her birthday was June 3rd and I just got this finished on Monday...oops) But she lives pretty far away from me and I won't be able to give it to her until we have a visit anyways.
Before I give it to her I'll add some photos of my girls to it.
The display itself is from Kaisercrafts' beyond the page line. It is made of MDF and I painted all the surfaces that aren't covered with paper with some cream acrylic paint. Then I went over the base with Tim Holtz fired brick distress ink.
The papers are all from the Prima Shabby Chic line. I just love the mix of the red and aqua colors. I glued the papers to the display pieces with Mod Podge and they are covered on front and backside in case she displays this somewhere that the back will be seen. I inked all the edges with more of the distress ink. The beautiful embellishments are Prima flowers, Prima pearls and crystals and Prima ribbons. The clear words are just printed on transparency sheets on my printer and then I cut them out and used my Tim Holtz Alterations edge dies to give them a decorative edge. I added a little white Staz-on ink so that they stand out a little more. The largest display (the one with the bird paper) has been sprayed with some Glimmer Mist to give it an aqua color with some shimmer. Also the rose ribbon trim that goes all around the base is Prima ribbon that I colored with the Glimmer Mist by dabbing each rosebud with a paint brush dipped in the Glimmer Mist.
I think that covers all the details but if you have any questions I'll be happy to answer them.
Of course you can get the Prima products in my store :)
