Here is an altered frame I did in a 3 way swap with two dear friends. The frames are from Ikea and was donated courteousy of Swati - thank you Swati!
I applied some clear crackle and was not happy with the outcome so ventured to alter it much more. I chose blue as my theme colour with a Websters Pages background.The above image shows the photo frame at a glance. I just love the soft look about it :-)
I tied vintage lace and a blue ribbon into bows and secured them in the top corner of the frame. The camel brown rose is by Prima and I added a blue heart and a pearl center to the bows; love the soft feel of the color combination.
I cut some burlap into a heart shape and secured a Prima heart shaped button in the center with some twine. I spun some blue beaded spray on the one side of the frame only. As you can see I created some texture with gesso on the frame itself.
Behind the blue swirl is a piece of gold ribbon netting. I tucked the end of the beaded spray behind there and secured it all with a beautiful flower by Prima.
The small flowers above were cut with a punch and kraft coloured cardstock. I embossed it, dabbed some paint on it and added a pearl center.
I love these swirls with the bling - they are called Bling Board by Scrappy Cat; I bought them a long while ago and I have never seen them in stores again
To complete the look I dangled a beaded charm from under the bows. The Websters Petite Pages sheet of paper was sprayed with Autumn Nights glimmer mist.
