An altered frame for Berry71Bleu

Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well. 

Here is an altered picture frame I created for Berry71Bleu using one of Marivic's handmade cards. 

I have had Ranger Crackle Paint for a LONG time and it was starting to dry out so I decided to apply it all over this frame to give it a vintage look to match the image on the tag. 

After I applied a couple of layers of Gesso, I applied the whole tube I had of Crackle Paint in Picket Fence and let that dry well overnight. 

I have used some gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard here too. Behind the window frame you can see the flourishes from 2 Crafty called Corner Heart Spray. For this, I simply used my Ranger Crackle Paint in Tattered Rose and left it over night to dry. 

The window one is called Ornate Window FrameI went over that with gesso, and then Shimmerz Texturez Tidy Widy before finishing it with some Silks Acrylic Glaze in Honey Amber. I also applied that on the flowers and in random parts of the frame to give it an aged look. 

There are also some frames I used from 2 Crafty, which I did not photograph! They are called Tiny Vivian's Frames where I applied the Tattered Rose Crackle Paint again. 

I hope you liked my project and I have inspired you to try something new today too :)

Have a great day!
