Today I'm sharing an altered frame made for the lovely Katy at MixedUp Magazine and happy that it is featured in the December Issue which can be obtained here. There are lots of amazing projects from incredibly talented artists so I feel very proud to have mine there alongside this amazing line up.
Using a cheap Ikea frame and DecoArt media products, a special give-away cabinet card (which is available in the magazine), and some games pieces, ...........
....... I had fun creating this shabby grungy project.
There is a step by step with photos in the magazine if you want to see how I achieved the effects.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend - hopefully not too busy in the run up to Christmas.

I was drooling over this when I saw it in the magazine originally, absolutely stunning creation yet again Brenda....how do you keep doing it?!
Beautiful piece Brenda. It has such a lovely vintage feel like some old family photograph hidden away and then found again by accident! Love it, Angela xXx
Fantastic techniques and textures. Its an awesome project.
Stunning weathered distressing on the frame, and a subtle watery look to the background - it looks like it's been washed ashore from a foundering ship - fantastic!
