Altered frame

 Hello everyone!

 I am delighted to be back with my new GDT post for Rainbowcraftykari!
This time, I altered a photo frame, giving it a uniqueness and make great gifts!

I love Mixed Media art....Throwing on the layers, textures and just having fun! Blue is my favorite color and I added some gold with lots of blue hues! You will see some of the metal embellishments, chippies, handmade flowers, doilies and stencilling peeking through!

The first thing I covered the chipboard frame with a coat of white gesso. After drying, I applied cheese cloth all over using Mod Podge.


Here what it looks like before adding gesso and sprays.  I roughly set up all the things on this frame and took a photo. Now added texture paste using some stencils for textures, Arranged all the embellishments, charms, different flowers, MDF flourishes and many more things according to my need and again applied a layer of gesso.

Now applied lots of layer of different inks, spray, Viva gold, glitters etc. At the bottom layer, I pasted a sequins lace too. For more textures and interest, I added microbeads in two varieties randomly, added a cute tiny heart, jewelled stone at the lamp post. Added a string of pearls inside the edges of photo panel.

Some close ups:

Now Added this frame to another covered frame with black CS with an acetate sheet.
I hope you all enjoyed this beautiful photo frame creation!

Thanks for attention. Enjoy your creativity! Hugs!
