This damask decoupage frame is super easy (Hello beginners!), and the kicker is that the Dimensional Magic on the hardwood accent piece in the middle. You may have to enlarge the photo to see the Details, but the increased DM-like finish looks really nice in real life.

I love these Michael's frames. They are only $1! You could cheap a wall of them so.
Flip the paper, design-side down, and draw the frame on the paper.
you Cut the paper – I always with a cutter on the inner side of the piece.
Paint your wood accent with the color of your choice. I used Aqua. I hope you are super impressed with my photo “skillz” as I focus on my fingers rather than the piece of wood. Let dry.

I have a secret that I love the Satin Mod smorgasbord. It’s my favorite-ready-made – it’s in the same version as the Hard layer, except for the Hard coat is super-duper-hard, for heavily used items. Regular Satin Mod hodgepodge works, since this frame is to be displayed, to beat up instead. Give your frame a couple of layers of decoupage and let it dry.
Apply Dimensional magic to the wood accent. One thing I LOVE about the DM is that it has a large surface tension – which means it stays where you put it (as long as you don’t squeeze too much out).
My #1 tip for DM is that you like to dry in a warm place. I always have it on the stove and away from the Windows. If it is cold, it will crack.
you can Stick your piece of wood on the front of the frame, put in a picture and you're ready to roll. Hi, a reasonably priced gift idea.
