This weekend I decided to turn this ugly frame:
(close up to get the full tackiness!)
I repainted the frame with a dark brown acrylic paint, and dry brushed a hint of gold onto it. I put just a plain piece of orange scrapbooking pater behind the glass.
I would have liked something with a bit of a pattern, but everything I had was too busy and it would have been hard to read once you wrote on the glass.
Then I made this little flower embellishment to add onto the corner
I made it using my childhood Fantastic Flowers "machine". That's right, I still have my flower die-cutter from when I was 9-ish?
Here are the 4 different flower plates:
And you just use the little green handle on the side to roll the purple plate through and it perforates your paper!
Here's what you get!
I was that kid that had every piece to every puzzle, all the little Barbie accessories, all that stuff that other kids usually lost. I still have the instructions that came with the darn thing!
