A Project Made Just Because.....D

Yayyyy this is the first time in a long time I have been able to make something just cos I wanted to lol.  

I chose to alter an old frame which previously housed Winnie the Pooh!  I prepared the frame with gesso and crackled the black paint over top the white.  The insert had the same treatment.  I just wanted a slight crackle.  I dabbed  cordurouy over the top of the cracks.  

I heat embossed ''Nevermore'' using Copper vintage embossing powder.  I stamped randomly using stamps from the stamp set for Poe and white brilliance ink over the crackled photo surround.  I then dabbed the distress ink over the wording.  I just love distress inks lol.

I was quite excited as I have had this set for a while and so wanted to play with it lol.

The photo I found on the net.  I resized and printed it onto photo paper.  I distressed the edges to give a little worn look.  I dabbed brushed cordurouy over the photo and then flicked water over it to give it the water damage effect.

I found the crow shaped NEVERMORE on the net also.  I triple embossed him to make him stand out a little.


 
I feel pleased with the finish and the fact I crafted just for me lol.

Thank you for visiting my world and do hope you come back and see me soon.
