Pink Altered photo frame with my own DIY embellished flowers!

Hello everyone!
Happy Saturday!

My project picked in the Top 3 category here:

Today I want to showcase an altered photo frame with my own DIY embellished flowers!

This altered unique and beautiful photo frame is a perfect addition to any room in your house! I made this for a young Birthday girl! It has a glass frame with a photo space to make it more special. The frame is embellished with pink DIY handmade flowers, glittery foam leaves and decorated with some chippies, mulberry flowers, crochet flowers, crystals and a butterfly too!

Firstly I started with making my own DIY handmade embellished flowers to decorate this photo frame. I die cut some flowers out of a white Sigma CS, distressed them, soaked into the water, shaping them and applied silver glitter paste with my finger to each flower edges (as shown below in the pic). Added pollens at the centre of the flowers. Added the last layer of flower from a silver fabric cloth too because it has a theme of pink and silver colors! The leaves are from a white glittered foam sheet and lightly distressed at the edges.

Pics from different angles:

You can see I have added a last layer to the flower with a silver cloth die in the below pic!

Made a pair of foam flowers too!

I removed the backward wooden stand and glass to paint it properly. I mixed the white chalk paint with a little pink one and mixed it well. Applied 3 coats on it. Highlighted the parts of the frame with platinum. Then applied 3 coats of varnish before decoration for more finishing.  Roughly arranged the materials and took a pic.

I took a petty floral PP with watercolor look and die cut the centre space to add the photo inside. Embellished the inner edges with double beaded white pearl lace.

Now arranged my own handmade flowers in pink with some tiny mulberry flowers, leaves and some more silver and pink flowers from my stash. Added a pretty butterfly in pink. 

And I arranged the decor in such a way that frame can be placed both in the vertical and Horizontal arrangement of the photo!

I am very happy with the result!
