QKD Wednesday blog hop- Altered Frame

Welcome to my stop along the way. If you came here from Nina's blog then you are on the right track. If you came here on your own,I am THRILLED to have you, but you are really going to want to start at the beginning at Queen Kat Designs Blog so you don't miss any of these fabulous creations! This week we were to "alter a frame"

This frame actually is around a mirror rather than a picture. I couldn't get a decent photo so had to remove the mirror. First I painted the wooden frame with acrylic paint. After it dried I stamped the flowers and words with Staz-On ink. I did cut the words apart so they would be easier to stamp individually. I no longer have any hesitation making my things work for me :). I colored in the flowers with my Prismacolor Markers, painted over them with angel dust Shimmerz and then top stamped again. I have placed magnets on the back of the frame and it is the perfect size for a school locker. All of the stamps, words and flower, are from the Live, Dream, Believe Stamp Set.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit and will come back again soon! Your next stop is Meredith's blog. She has a FABULOUS creation to share with you.

Great idea to cut up stamps to make them work. Your flowers are beautifully colored (I clicked on the photo to enlarge it). Cute project!
