Altered Vintage Frame by Alberto

Hello ladies and Gents,

It's Alberto here and today it's my turn to show you something to inspire you. 

As you noticed from my latest post on the 13@rts blog i'm so into altered art. Today i want to show how i altered this vintage frame i found in a vintage shop in my hometown.

I started covering it all with white gesso as base for everything, then i decided to make it look a bit rusty so i painted it with Ayeeda paints in different colors.

Here is the list of the paints i have used :


i'm quite sorry for the photos but sometimes it's hard to make pretty photos of an altered object....especially with awful weather outside!

Then i added a bit of black gesso here and there to increase the "rusty effect". 
The i put some metal embellishments, chipboards and flowers here and there :)

and here the final work, hope you'll enjoy!

Thank you for reading me, i can't wait to know what you think about and i'm still sorry for the bad photos, hopefully in the next days i'll make some better ones!

hugs, Alberto !
