Altered Frame...........D

Happy Saturday one and all

The weather is so changeable today, sunny then cloudy, sunny then heavy rain and now just dull and cold.  Where has our summer gone?  Oh yes we had it week before last lol.  Anyway I decided the best thing to do on a day like this is to get ma butt into my craft room and get on with a project.  I have been feeling creativeless for well over a week now and it was worrying me.  I eased myself back into my room last night and put together an easy tag and today I thought perhaps an easy frame may help so here it is lol.

I cast some cherubs using plaster this morning knowing that I would want to use them immediately as they are so so cute.  I had itchy palms to get started.  I have a pile of frames in my room that need something doing to them so I picked this one with the 3 apertures... Perfect!

I painted the background white. the aperture mount board and frame in black.  I was originally going to crackle them with gold but decided against it.  I wanted a different look.  I used a crackle stamp using white ink against the black and black ink against the white.  I then dry brushed my lil cherubs using aged gold acrylic paint and placed them in the apertures.  Voila all done!

Well that is it for today.. well perhaps not, we will see.
