“Follow your dreams” framed artPosted on Aug 5, 2017 7:05:00 AM by Grace Tolman
I love how the Paint and Create Kit by DCWV gives me a way to be ‘artistic’ without too much experience and effort. I also love how the Glue Dots® adhesive helps me to make use of an old frame while making a beautiful piece of home decor.
Made by: Grace Tolman
Time: Approximately 45 minutes
Size: 12 x 9 ½"
Here's what you need:
- Glue Dots® Advanced Strength Dot N Go™
- Glue Dots® Ultra-Thin Dots™
- Glue Dots® Pop Up Dots™
- Re-purposed frame
- Hearts of Gold Paint & Create Kit by Die Cuts with a View
- Craft Knife
Here's what you do:
Measure the inside of the frame and cut the cardboard to match that measurement.
Cut the piece of the “Paint and Create kit” background paper that measures the same as the cardboard.
Add color to the background piece using the watercolor set. Set aside to dry.
Cut a piece the quote paper measuring 7" x 7". Adhere to the light blue card stock and trim to create a matte around the piece using Ultra-Thin Dots.
Add some splatters of color to the quote piece using some swipes of watercolor and also splatters of paint.
Adhere the quote block on the center of the watercolor background using Pop Dots.
Adhere the background onto the cardboard using Advanced Strength Glue Dots.
Place Advanced Strength Glue Dots adhesive on the inside edges of the frame.

I’m a mom to a 10 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. Therefore my life is usually filled with learning, new discovery, bribery and driving to and from all of our activities. I have a loving and very supportive husband of 11 years. When the kids have gone to bed at night, my time is spent crafting while catching up on my favorite shows and movies. I also enjoy reading, window shopping, knitting and perusing blogs for inspirations. Three years ago we moved to Colorado from California and we are enjoying our new environment. I feel very inspired with my new home, my new scrapbook space and the mountain views. Although I’ve been doing some type of scrapbooking since grade school, I only started to scrapbook seriously after my son was born. When he was born I knew I would be staying at home with him but coming from a fast paced sales job I was afraid I would ran out of things to do during the day. Little did I know that with newborns you won’t have any time to do anything else. Anyways, after going through a basic scrapbooking class I was hooked and haven’t stopped scrapping since.
