A heart in love with beauty never grows old..



When I was looking for my acrylic charms yesterday I found all my "alterable stash" at the back of the cupboard that I had forgotten about!! So over the next couple of weeks I am going to alter these before I forget about them again... These 3 little photo frames contain some little twinchies I have made from some of my favourite collage sheets from Lisas altered art and Ceremony. After visiting the mill yesterday and seeing all the rust I wanted to make these wooden frames rusty so used a combination of paint, gesso and embossing powder all heated up with a heat gun.
We have been busy most of the day as my eldest is going camping tomorrow so hoping the rain clears up. My husband has been busy collecting a load of Norwegian scouts from the local airport and giving them a quick tour of Liverpool and providing all our camping beds etc as the church hall is putting them all up for the night....

Lorraine, these are so pretty and unique! I love the rust...it gives the art such an 'old' look...and added texture.

Great effect!

PS. Sorry I haven't been by lately. It's been crazy around my house this last month.
