Altered Frame :)

Hey Hi Friends!
Today's post is about an altered frame. This frame was lying with me for more than 1.5 yrs now and current challenges demand it to alter it and so this sweet trial :) 




This frame fits 4"x6" pic and it was gifted by a friend when we left Taiwan. So wanted to place a pic which we took in Taiwan in an outdoor shoot, before our relocation to UAE.

This pic was taken during onset of Spring season and so wanted to give more cheery and colorful blooms which is signature of Spring :)

Gessoed down the frame and added these lacey distressed Tiffany border by modpodging it. Border is distressed with Walnut stain - Distress stain. Then blooms are made from Cheerylynn Designs (CLD) Gardenia strip and the floral leaves are made from CLD Olive branches and MFT florish dies which is again sponged with peeled paint Distress stain. 

Closeup views of Blooms :)




Flowers are misted with Distress stains (Milled lavender, Mustard seed, Dried marigold, Dusty concord) and embossed to give shapes. (Love making these as i never used these colors for flowers earlier). Centre is made using styrofoam balls which is filled with Pop microbeads. (Oh ya...its my new add to my stash..Just loving it) Fillers flowers are added to clusters.

Love Heart woodchip is gesso-ed first and then misted with Heidi Swapp Georgia peach shimmer and lastly added glossy accents for that glossiness. Lastly added pearl strips and FAMILY glittered alphas as final touch.
