Hi guys! This is part of what I was working on yesterday. These are formerly dark walnut vintage/antique frames. I had these in my antiques booth for awhile. They had old prints of hummingbirds in them. I got tired of them being there so out came the hummingbird prints (to sell separately of save to color copy for collage projects).
I made roses, rosebuds and leaves out of polymer clay, baked them and hot glued them on top.
I painted the frames either light pink or pale aqua, then buttercream, then white. My trick is to use a pretty worn out paintbrush and to try to do a sort of crappy job of painting but achieve overall full coverage. Let dry then sand to distress. Sometimes I add a greige glaze. Sometimes I varnish, spray varnish or wax. Sometimes I am lazy and do none of the above!
It also sort of depends on the look I am going for. I added scrapbook paper and reassembled.
Close up of the roses..these are pretty easy to make!
All done! These could also be used as a frame, just add a pic!I think these are headed for my antiques/vintage booth again..hope they sell! (Umm..I maaayy keep one for my bathroom and stop leaving post it notes all over my mirror!) Have a great day! Til next time! Julia
