Always Happy Home Decor

I wanted to add a little inspiration to my work area so I created this happy little framed sentiment. I used the American Crafts Shimelle True Stories collection. I put together a tutorial for you as well.
Always Happy by Heather LeopardSupplies: True Stories collection: (370703) – English Breakfast Paper, (370705) – Lemon & Ginger Paper, (370736) – Enamel dots, (370743) – Die Cut Cardstock Shapes, (370750) – Pattern Masks
1. Gather your supplies.

2. Apply gesso to patterned paper using a stencil pattern mask. Set aside to dry.

3. Using foam dots, adhere sentiment over a coordinating patterned paper.

4. Once the gesso is dry, insert it into your frame. Adhere the sentiment from step 2 on the glass of the frame (or remove the glass from the frame).

5. Add embellishments to the outside of the frame.
