Wedded Bliss!

That’s the theme I have chosen as Guest Host at Mixed Media Monday this week. Whether it’s your experience or not, this is the topic and up to you to interpret in any way you please!! Here’s the altered frame I created around the theme…

"Sweet Love"

I bought a pair of frames with cherub pics in them because I loved the ornate border and they are about 6″x6″ square. The collage image is from Ten Two Studios, and the shell corner stamp a freebie from Crafty Individuals. Sweet Love vellum stickers from old TLC stash.

I sanded the gold-coloured frame, painted it with white gesso, rubbed that off; black acrylic paint, removed with a baby wipe; buffed and gold rubon smudged over the raised areas with a fingertip. It’s charming, isn’t it and very cheap and easy to do! Here’s a closer look at the image:


This one’s either at the Gallery in Bude, or sold by them! I do hope you all enjoy my theme and look forward to seeing everyone’s take on the challenge… expect more from me over the next few weeks! 😉
