Altered Frame, Summer Garden.

Good morning,

My project today is for entry in Live Love Crafts June Challenge, Summer Garden.  The link to the challenge can be found here.

I have used a wooden picture frame without the glass.  First I painted the wood with Gesso, then embossed it with Stampendous Frantage Shappy Pink. To finish I added pearl trim around the edge of the frame.

I mounted a digital image on to thick card and inserted in the frame.  I used lace from my stash to frame the picture  For the embellishments I made a lace flower and used a bead for the centre and added a stick pin.  I then added a small rose flower spray from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The top left corner I added a beaded flower and the bottom right corner two more WOC flowers.  Top right corner is a dangle embellishment I made from a necklace and added a bird charm.  I then added crochet trim all around the edge of the frame and attached cream ribbon to hang the frame.

I hope you like my altered frame.

Thanks for stopping by.
