TANDO OVAL MINI-FRAME


Hi there lovely bloggettes...are you enjoying the lovely sunshine that we have down here in Cornwall again today????  At least there is a breeze today!!!!

I have been DT-ing for a couple of days and been playing with a very pretty little oval frame from TANDO CREATIVE.  Its around 4&a half inches wide to give you an idea of size and comes complete with its own little stand.  The stand comes apart again easily if you wanted to post your frame.  Here it is nekkid hehe...


I have kept my frame fairly plain for this project as I had just the right picture for it to give as a gift. The photograph is of my daughter and her fiance and I love the colours in it. It does look like I have really cropped the picture but thats how the photographer took it...off page sort of.  First I glued string all around the inside and outside edges. Then I painted glue inbetween and added in some micro beads.





When it was dry I painted the whole thing with gold acrylic paint. I treated the little heart shapes on the stand the same way. Where there was a 'join' in the string I added some ribbon, some beads & a love charm to match my daughters hair!!!


Thank you for looking today, be back soon!!!  Hugs XXX
