DT Project - Altered Frame

This altered frame features lots of chipboard shapes by Gina's Designs.  This frame began as a particle board unfinished frame which I purchased with a coupon from Michael's.  I crackle painted it and added the chippie embellishments.  The frame was donated to an auction for a dear friend to help with some veterinary costs.  The frame measures 12 x  12 inches and holds a 5 x 7 photo, or a smaller photo with a mat.

  2. Liebe Nancy,
    das Bild mit dem eingearbeiteten Rahmen finde ich wunderschön. Ich drücke die Daumen, dass die Versteigerung eine recht hohe Summe ergibt.
    Liebe Grüße, Bärbel
