Altered Frames


A Big Thank You to my friend MaryMargaret Corcoran for this fantastic idea! I saw some of these frames that she made and just had to make some myself.

I made this sample in preparation for my Father's Day Frame Class coming up later this month. I decorated an unfinished wood frame with some double sided patterened paper (Four Seasons from Stampin' Up!) using Modge Podge. I then added some blue grosgrain ribbon and a piece of Hodge Podge Hardware. I sanded all the edges with my sanding block and finally stamped the "best DAD" on some remaining patterned paper using Typeset Alphabet Upper and Rough Edges Alphabet. This was then framed with Bravo Burgundy and then decorated with brass brads and adhered with Sticky Strip.
