Try it on Tuesday- alter a frame

Our challenge this week is sponsored by our friends at The Craft Barn - click on the pic to be transported to a fabulous shop! This weeks project was so much fun to make. My lovely pal Georgina gave me a frame back in January to alter so after a bit of playing this is what I came up with. We did this at Stamping club a few weeks ago and the ladies came up with some truly stunning frames of all shapes and sizes. I gessoed then used adirondack paint dabbers to the frame - once dry I have over stamped with archival sepia using a Tim holtz swirl stamp. The verse is a clarity stamp which I bought from someone in blogland a month or so ago - fabulous saying and I did something similar last year for my brother. The flower is an elusive images flower stamped 3 times and made into a rose with a pearl added to the centre. A little lace and a TH ticket and pin and its done. It was fun to make and I would certainly do it again.
