SHOULD I OR SHOULD'NT I ?

This post was from July 2010. I love how this collage turned out and now I'm sorry I sold it  our barn sale. I need to find another frame like this one.
A while back I found this frame and picture at a yard sale for $3. I loved the frame and it is wood! The picture..........is nice but actually I just wanted it for the frame.
So I had taken the picture out and painted the frame white with some paint left over from another project then distressed it a tiny bit......



I then turned the picture around to the back and started a collage of pictures I had printed out......
I just love this picture.....I found it on Magic Moonlights Free Images.



I used Mod Podge that I had on hand and then aged it with patina glaze.........



She's such a cutie!

Hi Pattie...

Ohhh...what a fabulous frame! You know, I have several that are somewhat similar but have left them gold, of course they are old family heirlooms with old family photos so I hated to change them. But...I love how the beautiful engravings just popped out when you painted the frame white and distressed it...it's gorgeous! I also liked the picture that came with the frame but your collage is also really beautiful! We have to make these things our "own"...and that is exactly what you did...love it!!! Thank you so much for sharing this sweet project with us today for Sunday Favorites...it was truly a delight to have you, my friend!!!

Warmest wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design

Love what you did with your new frame! (must say it even looks much better now you've laid your hands on it :-)
Well done! ~Ira

This is just so pretty, the white frame is gorgeous. I'm wondering did you use the metal and patina glaze on the frame too? I'm looking for a good glaze and don't know what to purchase. The collage is wonderful, one of my favorite mediums. Thanks so much for linking up to the party!

I like what you did to the picture frame and would have done the same thing. I have a mahogany mirror with flower detail similar to your frame that I painted white and glazed. Use it in a guest bathroom over the sink.
Found your blog through Common Ground.

I also wanted to tell you about our new Giveaway Friday (goes up Thursday evenings). It's a convenient place for bloggers to link their giveaways and a one stop shop for readers to find them! Hope to see you there.

What a beautiful frame and collage. Thanks for sharing your talents.

Jenn Seratt said...

Gorgeous collage! I hope you saved the original picture for other great projects. Thanks for linking up to Sunday Art Therapy at Seeds on a Breeze.

Terry said...

I love what you did, and like you I purchased a frame (almost exactly) but mine had just been restored with gold leaf so I so far have not painted it. Instead, I hung a collection of antique baby shoes as seen in my Green Toile Guest Bedroom post. Very creative what you did. Terry

Serendipity Chic Decor said...

First, I love what you did with the frame. The photo you decopodged tells such a story. It's eerie, yet intriguing.....

Take care,
Lisa

Sommer said...

Thanks so much for linking this up to my VIP party! The frame turned out beautifully and I just adore those old photo's. In fact I've been begging my grandmother to start copying me all the old family photo's.

Have a wonderful weekend!
