When I saw that Leisure Arts had a Diamond Art baseball design, I knew it would make a great gift for my dad. The sparkly art is fantastic, but it really came together when I framed it. Actually, that's not technically a frame - read on to learn what I did! Affiliate links below.
Framed Diamond Art Baseball Glove
- Leisure Arts Diamond Art Baseball in Glove
- microtip scissors
- Plaid 12" x 12" Square Panel
- Folk Art Teddy Bear Brown acrylic paint
- Beacon FabriTac
- black cardstock
Complete the Diamond Art, then carefully trim away the excess fabric.
Thin down the paint with water. You want a runny, ink-like consistency. Use a paper towel to rub the paint on the square panel, covering all surfaces. Let it dry. If you want a deeper color, repeat.
Cut the cardstock to fit inside the panel. Spread a thin coat of FabriTac on the inside of the frame and press the cardstock in place. Let it dry.
Spread a thin coat of FabrTac to the back of the Diamond Art. Center it on the cardstock.
