A One Dollar Frame Transformation

For this project, I took a frame that was plain from Joann, it had monkeys on it to color in. I modified it using:

1. Gesso
2. Delta Acrylic Paint in Tahiti Blue and Magnolia White
3. Crafty Secrets Stamp SM40 Grand Greetings
4. Staz On Black Ink
5. Ranger Ink - Tim Holtz - Distress Crackle Paint - Clear Rock Candy
6. Ric-Rak and Ribbon
7. Crafty Secrets Homemade Images and Journal Notes

It was so easy to gesso and paint the frame, stamp the image, paint with distress crackle paint, add the ribbons and cut and add the embellishment "coffee, tea or me" and frame up the picture.

Hope you enjoy this end of summer project! Look for more great ideas from Crafty Secret next Monday!

<3 Victoria
