Expression - altered frame

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.

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!
