for my first "solo" piece....

I've chosen to alter the frame...

As soon as I saw the Pieces that Di had sent me I had an idea for the frame....its highly influenced by the recent workshops that T!m Holtz did over here....

First I painted and embosed the stand...


The bare chipboard was painted with acryllic paint, embossed and then dry brushed over..

Then for the actual frame...

I have painted and dry brushed the base, then T!m's fragments and ideology pieces were used to decorate the edges, the middle was created using Wendy Veechi's stamps... more details are given on my blog.

The centre section could also be used for a scrap layout or a picture....

Hope you've enjoyed my first "solo" piece.
