Time for another fab challenge..........D

Yes thats right it challenge time again over @ The Outlawz, Paper ala Mode.  The challenge this week is being hosted by me and the theme this week is any project 

ANYTHING GOES

I have altered a frame and coloured up a stamped image by Kaisercraft.

I coloured the image using two distress inks - Forest Moss and scattered straw.  I then distressed the edges and used vintage photo to make it appear aged.

The frame I simply gessoed, painted the first layer green, then crackle medium with cream on the top.  

I actually stuck my thumb print to the frame by accident and said a couple of choice words however when it came to adding the distress inks over the top it actually looks like a knot in the wood.  Good move to leave my mistakes lol.  





I was going to decorate the frame with flowers and metal corners however when placing them on it it looked awful so left it as it is.

I do hope you like my inspirational project this week.  i have to say I was out of my comfort zone creating something less dramatic.  Saying that I am relatively pleased with the finished project.

Hope to see you all joining in with our fun challenge.
