OVAL FRAME

Helloooo, its Karen here today!  I have been playing with the very pretty OVAL FRAME.  This one has a very pretty little stand that is very easy to put together.  I love the way the little stand slots together to form a pair of hearts!  Here it is nekkid hehe...


I have kept my frame fairly plain for this project as I had just the right picture for it to give as a gift.  The photograph is of my daughter and her fiance and I love the colours in it.  First I glued string all around the inside and outside edges.  Then I painted glue inbetween and added in some micro beads.

When it was dry I painted the whole thing with gold acrylic paint.  I treated the little heart shapes on the stand the same way.  Where there was a 'join' in the string I added some ribbon, some beads & a love charm to match my daughters hair!!!


Thank you for looking and do pop back soon for some more TANDO inspiration from the design team, HUGS XXX
