Altered a frame from a charity shop

Hello and today I would like to show you a frame I bought from a charity shop in Bakewell foe £1.00
and show you what i have done to it.

This is how it started 

I painted over it with gesso 


 then it was painted with a perlesent bronze paint


I then got a sponge and some white perlesant paint and sort of stipled it on

This is how it looked 

For the inside i measured the area the cut piece of card the same side 
and cut some nice gold patterned paper just a bit bigger

I cut the corners off to help to fold and stick the edges down
 like so

This is what it looks like  

I then added some lace and tuck it in to the frame 
I have also used gilding flakes all over it buy putting some flake glue on a sponge and dabbing on to certain areas.

I have decorated with flowers a tonic fairy die pearls and some jewelry found in a car boot,
the test tube is filled with fake pearls.

 and finally some close ups.



I hope you like and please comment and let me know.

Faux leather books

Hi and i have made these a week ago and wanted to share i have taken some pics of the proses but then forgot some some of work in progress and some finished.






 so it involves wetting kraftcard with water mixed with glycerin both sides
till wet and playable then scrunch up couple of times then emboss it and dry  it then its distress it spry front with spray and shine dry again,
then glue in some material and saw in leaves of paper.
i hope to do a better step by step post soon as will be doing this soon in a craft shop class.

Hope you all get the idea lol
