My Mum is one of those Super Special People and I don't tell her enough so I thought I'd make her something to remind her of just how special she is.
I am entering my altered photo frame into the following challenges :
Teddy-Bo - anything but a card
Creative Crafts challenge - flowers (flower on frame made from a necklace)
Do it with digi's - spots or stripes
Charisma cardz - flowers (see above)
Stamptacular - seeing double (2 teddy bo images)
Craft your passion - anything goes
Papertake - anything goes
Sweet Stampin - something unusual (the flower is part of a necklace)
So here is my very first altered object.
So where did I start? Well instead of being sensible and finding some tutorials on how to alter a frame I just just jumped in with both feet.
I cut the pink spotty paper (sorry don't know the maker) just bigger than the size of the frame plus the depth. I glued it to the frame using glossy accents and then went round the frame with tea distress ink.
The Teddy Bea on the front of the frame was printed and then coloured with copics, she was then fussy cut out and glued to the papered frame.
The second larger "Mum" Teddy Bea was printed the size of the cut out of the frame and coloured with copic's. I then went overboard with the glitter which sadly does not show up in the photo. I used a mix of pink Martha Stewart glitter and crystal glamour dust.
Finally, I have a good root through the bowl I keep cheap and/or broken jewellery in and found this beautiful flower. It is kept in place thanks to my hot glue gun. And the finishing touch for the frame involved colouring some thin silver ribbon with dark pink copic and then wrapping it around a copic and leaving it to dry. Once dry the ribbon is much more solid and stayed in the curled shape I needed.
I hope you have enjoyed my altered frame and I hope to see you again soon.
Oh before I go I just wanted you all to know that your super sweet comments really do give me such a lift, I read every one of them and I can't thank you enough,
