Altered wood frame for Valentine's day

Hello !

Here I am once again with a mixed media project, but more shabby than usual. This altered frame would make a lovely gift for Valentine's day...

I create this project for a workshop I have once a month in Houston, where I teach papercrafts techniques (scrapbooking, cardmaking and mixed media) to a group of French ladies (I can do that in English too if you are interested). We choose to do a frame this month, last month it was cards, the month before layout, and I don't know yet for the next one. Probably layout.

The wood frame was first covered with white gesso before adhering lace all over it. Then I added the embellishments (clay with moulds, flowers, metal...).

Once everything was dry, I applied white gesso over everything, lace included. then I applied inks (Enchanting and Indulgence Minx by Art Anthology) with a brush and added water with a mini bottle spray.

This is a fun and easy project to make for your loved one(s), and you can add any color you like. Or change the embellishments for a different theme. You will find at the end of this post affiliate links to some of the products I used.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope this project will inspire you to create one of your own.
See you soon for another one !
