We have a winner for this posting who has been chosen using random.org. She was winner #12 of 13.
It is Marijane who made the following comment: I am thrilled to be getting ideas beyond card-making! All the home-dec art I saw today is really inspiring and with Christmas still a way off, there's time to make some of these darling projects as gifts. You will be remembered long after the Christmas cards are put away! The featured stencil is also one of my favorites.

Our fearless leader, Deborah March, has inspired me with a project she did a few weeks ago! So I CASEd it! Her project was a frame as well and she too, used the Corner Swirls stencil (LJ896). I loved it, but I diverged a bit and used the Matte Black Embossing Paste (DMBP) instead of the white that she chose. I found this frame already painted at a discount store and I couldn't resist the shabby chic finish that was already on the frame. I printed out a photo of my daughter onto just regular copy paper...this gave the picture a grainy appearance. It was only black and white, so to give it a vintage feel I sprayed it with the Memories Mists colors- Pale Ale and Orange Juice. I know there are a lot of mists or sprays out there, but frankly I love these. They dry quickly and they are very saturated in pigment. This sepia toned look was just what I wanted.
