Here's what you need to make this little botanical bloom print:
printed botanical picture
glass from the frame
white paint pens (both fine and extra fine for more details)
colored paper or fabric for background
Begin by placing your botanical print on a flat surface. Next, line up the frame's glass over the print and start tracing the image directly onto the glass with your fine tip paint pen.
Continue tracing until the details you want included are complete. (Yikes! Someone needs a manicure.) Allow to dry for 10-15 minutes. If there are finer details you want to highlight, use your extra fine paint pen to do so. Keep in mind that this does not need to be a perfect match to the original. Allow your print to dry completely. Note: if there are words you want to include, you'll want to print the picture in a mirror image.
When your masterpiece is dry, place it in the frame with the painted side facing to the back. Put your piece of colored paper or fabric into the frame and then the backing. Turn it around and admire. Ta-da!
This craft could be repeated for just about any genre of artwork. Trace several different pictures and back them with vibrant colors for a whimsical wall arrangement. It's the perfect craft to make with all those thrifted picture frames you've got in your closet. ;-)
