"Frozen" Frame with DecoDen Bling and Deflecto!

Have you gotten in on the decoden trend yet?

Decoden is a trend from Japan! The term "deco" is short for decorated and "den" is short for "denwa" meaning "phone" in Japanese. This craze has swept the crafting world!

My husband and I recently took a trip to Walt Disney World and that place is "Frozen" crazy. Olaf the snowman, Elsa, and Anna were everywhere! We had our picture taken with the Olaf outside Hollywood Studios -- I thought this would be a great jumping off point for my own project.

I had the pleasure of trying out DecoDen Bling from Signature Crafts (provided to me by the company) and I loved it! It's a dimensional paste that comes in these cool squeeze tubes and you apply it with decorative tips, just like you would use on a cake! The paste comes in 9 colors which makes it so versatile and it's nice and thick so it will hold any sort of bling you want to add to your project.

I started with a fun acrylic easel frame from Deflecto Crafts. I used the star tip and the white DecoDen Bling paste to go around the edge of the frame so that it looks almost like snowflakes. I then used the turquoise paste  to add a little color to the "snowflakes". Finally, I added a glitter snowflake (that was an ornament  until I snipped off the string!).

I then placed our picture on Rowlux Illusion Film and put it in the frame! That's it! 

This was a fun and totally easy project that you could do with kids (a "Frozen" party activity, maybe?).
