Altered Frame

Saturday, March 19, 2011
Just wanted to share with you all my recent swap project that I made. It's an Altered Frame. It's my very first altered project, and I love the way it turned out.

So, here it's my handmade creation...

I got the frame from Michaels, then I painted it with 2 different layers of chocolate. After the paint dried, I added some metallic copper glimmer using my homemade glimmer mist. While it's still wet, I used my heat gun and heated the frame. Love the effects from the glimmer mist.

I also made the flowers. Actually, I had tons of fun making these :D

I used Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Die, McGill Punch, some Blings and Tattered Angel Glimmer Mists (Dragonfly and Candy Apple Red).

After putting this together...I want to keep this frame to myself. LOL. Just Joking. :D
I need to pack this now and send it to my partner.
I hope she likes it. What do you think???

I asked my hubby if he wanted me to make a frame like this for him...and he answered yes and no. Yes for Please make an altered frame for me, and No for Please don't be so girly. LOL.
Well, we'll see what I can come up with.

Thank you for stopping by.
