Layered Flower Blossom Frame

By: Amy Anderson for Plaid Mod Podge

Decoupage started in the early 17th century with the layering of papers. The flowers on this frame from Amy Anderson pay homage to the foundations of decoupage while offering a modern approach.

Layered Flower Blossom Frame

 

Materials:

  • Wood frame – 12" x 12" with a 5" x 7" opening
  • Mod Podge Gloss
  • FolkArt Acrylic Paint – Turner’s Yellow
  • Scrapbook paper – 8 sheets of 2 coordinating patterns for the large flower, 6 for the medium and 4 for the small. I used papers from the K & Company Lofty Nest Collection
  • Buttons, 3 coordinating

Instructions:

  1. Remove the hardware and glass from your frame. Paint with Turner’s Yellow. Give several coats and allow to dry.
     
  2. Loosely draw circles (they don’t have to be perfect) with a pencil on the frame – draw one small, one medium and one large. These are going to be the placement guides for the flowers.
     
  3. Using your scissors, cut out petals freeform from your papers. For the big flower, I used eight sheets of paper in two coordinating patterns. I alternated paper patterns between layers of flowers.
     
  4. Use Mod Podge to layer your flower petals as shown in the photo. You will adhere the petals with Mod Podge around your hand drawn circle, smooth them and then allow to dry for 15 – 20 minutes. Repeat with the second layer, making a smaller ring of petals than you did for the first layer. Repeat until you have layered the entire flower. Allow to dry.
     
  5. Repeat step 4 with the medium flower and then the small flower.
     
  6. Coat the entire frame with Mod Podge to seal, including the flowers. Repeat and allow to dry.
     
  7. Glue the buttons to the centers of the flowers with the craft glue. Allow the project to dry for 24 hours before replacing the hardware and hanging.
