Altered Photo Frame & Brayered Insert
This started life as a wooden grooved frame which I came across just recently whilst cleaning out a cupboard & rather than throw it out, I thought I have a go at altering it. As it was a bit grubby I removed the glass & left it to soak in soapy water & cleaned down the frame then covered with aluminum foil & pushed into the grooves, next I applied alcohol inks to add a bit of colour & my frame was complete. Now for an insert - I decided to have a play with my brayer as I've had a lot of fun with it recently!! I followed the instructions on my dvd - "The Art of Transparent Stamping" by Barbara Santerelli, using my Clarity Stamps. I had to bin my first couple of attempts as they were a bit of a mess.......LOL!! I got there in the end & was quite pleased with the finished article. What do you think? Thanks for looking - all comments appreciated. (click on image for clearer view)
