Today I am sharing an altered frame I created with one of the adorable Christmas Images from Nicecrane Designs.
I started by making the background for the central panel. I added some texture paste through a couple of stencils and when it had dried added some colour with Distress Stains.
Here you can see some detail. Not sure why I am showing this, because in the end I covered it all over, but at least it can serve as a reminder for myself. I now wish I had left it like that...
The wooden frame was altered in a very similar way: Texture added through stencils first, but this time I also wanted some crackle, so I painted it with Paper Artsy Fresco in French Roast, then added some Crackle Glaze and then did the top coat in a mixture of colours to blend with the background of my central panel.Finally the raised bits were highlighted with Treasure Gold in my all time favourite colour White Fire.
Well, there you have it, I am truly not sure whether I like it, but what is done is done and I will just have to live with it....
Hope you are finding some creative time and thank you for dropping in like always!
