  Dear Friends
In this era of smart phones, we all would surely have taken a lot of solo or group selfies. We would have also gloated over our photographic abilities, shared our mesmerizing selfie with our friends and family members over FB, Instagram or What's App and perhaps repeated it over and over again. But most of these lovely pictures would have remained imprisoned in chat backups or in our SD cards. Sometimes not even in our memory.
Today I present you a dedicated SELFIE FRAME to immortalize your best selfie in this hand crafted and unique way.
This lovely creation was on my mind since long and on this X-mas day, I thought I should encourage the crafter in you to present this creation to yourself in the new year.
Made in a mixed-media layout format, using guesso, modeling paste,spray and lot of decorations, the Selfie Frame gets even more unique by using exquisite Papericious "Often" Die-cut embellishments -- something unique from Papericious and which really inspired my crafty bones to undertake this creation.
Let me give you step wise procedure of this creation.

Step 1.Take any pattern paper of your choice and apply a layer of gesso

Step 2.
Take some torn paper and then again apply a layer of gesso

Step 3
After applying a layer of gesso , heat it and then take stensil and use modelling paste
and sprinkle some dry glitter 
and again after heating i had sprayed lindy's spray and color blooms 
and after spraying i had embellish them
with papericious dies and buttons from "often" collection
and flowers from my stash

So let your best selfie of 2015 be on this Selfie Frame and remain in your living room or study wall throughout 2016 as a remembrance of the year gone by.
Or make this as a unique new year gift for the one whom you want to thank for being with you in 2015.
Merry Christmas and a Happy and Crafty New Year 2016
