I picked up these frames at my local craft store for about $.30 each.  I painted them, added papers and a picture, then embellished for an outstanding gift for the holiday!

For the first one, I used the “Flourish 6” piece which was painted with Luminarte paints, then coated with distress crackle paint for texture.  Once dried, I added gold stickles to the ends of the leaves for accents 🙂

For my second piece, I used the word “Amazing” which I sprayed with Maya Road “white out” mist.  Once dried, I used a sharpie brush tip marker on the upper half, then added gold stickles again for accent!

For my last altered frame, I used the “Flourish 22” chipboard piece (one can never have too many flourishes!!!) that I colored using a brush tip sharpie some Luminarte Paint for shimmer.  Once dried, I used my white Signo pen for accents and topped it off with stickles!!!
