photo frame by Ingrid

      Hello everyone! 
It's my turn on the blog and today I have an altered photo frame.
Photo frame with a photo of the four of us, taken on our last vacation.
We had the most wonderful vacation and I wanted to make something to always remember these special days together.

The shutters had, originally, a bright orange base, so I gave it two coats with gesso first.
Started this project by painting the frame with a mix of gesso and magic powder.
Added some glass filler,glass beads and silver microspheres.

The 'remember' metal plate is from Scrapberry's.

The rolled up flowers were made with the "Secret Letters" papers and the "Winter Tales" papers.
Sheets: my memories, berry and holly.
Although the Winter Tales papers are perfect for winter and christmassy projects,
 this project shows it can be used for any other project as well.

The lovely decorative twigs between the leaves.

Added some chipboard behind the shutters, painted with gesso.

The wooden word 'family'.

Created a lovely texture with the glass filler, glass beads and silver microspheres.
