Altered Frame

I found an inexpensive frame at Good Will and thought it would be fun to alter it for the newlyweds. It was basically an off white with a large center for a photo.


First I applied a layer of gesso using a stencil. 









After a light layer of paint, I sanded to reveal the pattern. There is also a layer  of stamping. Embellishments include hydrangeas and birds  - both the bride's favorites.  I used burlap and twine which were also part of the wedding decor. 

(I do apologize for the faint stripes in the photo. My printer was running out of ink)

Adding this to Anything But a Card Anything Goes Challenge. 
Thank you for visiting today! Have a great week!

Nice soft sponging on the frame.
