ALTERED FRAME

Good morning all! Last night I got the chance to play and I took it! My friend and I did some shopping yesterday and came across these wood frames at Target on the clearance rack. Of course, we snatched them right up and I just had to alter it. So, I did! Now, for all you SU! folks out there, yep, I used (gasp!) non SU! products on this project, BUT I did stamp *smile* so not all is lost. I used some DaisyD coordinating paper so I could mix and match on the frame and I used a small piece of the patterned paper to cover my SU! flower chipboard. I then used my liquid glue and some dazzling diamonds to give it some sparkle. The buttons are from my stash. The stamp set I used was an old favorite - Doodle This. I will never get tired of this set - I absolutely love it! Then, I used some copper stickles to give it some pop and of course bling! I adhered the paper to the frame using Modge Podge and then sealed it with the same once it was all on there. This is the first time I actually covered the whole frame with paper instead of painting some of it, but I really like the way my frame came out - I just have not decided what pic will go inside. OR, if I will just stamp some more and make it a piece of home decor. I love all the options, don't you? I am not sure the pics give my frame the justice it deserves, but here they are! Let me know what you think! Have a great weekend!

This is so beautiful. I know what you mean about venturing away from SU products, it's a funny sense of guilt. I've come to realize that it only enhances my abilities as a demonstrator to use others products. It stretches my creativity!
Simply stunning project!!!
