My first frame

I have done this as a pressie for my mum (mothering sunday).

I'm not sure if this counts as altered art or is it just decorated.

It's an mdf frame just under 8" square, meanie that i am i have used a board on the back of the frame so i can use the mdf back for another project lol.

I coloured the frame using distress ink pads in fired brick and vintage photo. I dabbed on the ink then blended them using a cloth. I then used a diluted metallic paint and rubbed that over the top to give a sparkly effect rather than colour. I then used a paper artsy stamp and black stazon to add the pattern to the frame.

I used friendly plastic and 2 flower stamps to fill in the holes in the frame, the daisy is hampton arts, the poppy is beach bum. Use metal letter and flower gems to finish

My first hanging piece.

I really hope my mum likes it.

All i can say is phew. I was doing an altered book for her pressie spent a fortnight getting it to the decorating stage and silly mare that i am i did it upside down and back to front so the ole was upside down. Doh!

Sorry for the 2 pics i forgot to resize firstr one and i can't work out how to delete it.
