I've altered an old, unloved frame I recently found in a charity shop.
I first applied a layer of gesso and then a layer of parchment colour acrylic paint. Then the frame was generously sprayed with Aqua Lagoon, Silver and Lilac Night cosmic shimmer mists. I love the metallic shimmer and look the fame has - it was very difficlut to photograph it, especially in these colours but I hope you get the feeling lol ;).
Then I stamped a selection of images from PaperArtsy, T!m Holtz and Craft Stamper onto tissue paper, heat embossed in white and applied to the frame.
The panels inside the frame were stamped with a flourish stamp, embossed using Creative Expression Time embossing folder and coloured with various Distress Inks (faded jeans, broken china, worn lipstick, milled lavender, dusty concord).
As I love recycling, or re-purposing as it is now very fashionably described, the dress form skirt is made from a baby wipe I used to wipe off the excess ink from spraying the frames ;)
And I love the floating effect of the clock hands attached to the fame glass with some 3d foam pads ;)).
Well, I hope you will join us for this week's challenge and have a lovely weekend! Don't forget to check the wonderful creations from the rest of the DT and thank you for all your sweet comments!
