This is what I started with. A variety of wooden frames, pics, lace and flowers. ( I have a love affair with Prima) The wooden frames I picked up for under $2 (on sale). They take mist or paint very well, but I want to have some continuity with this set so I painted my frame with white acrylic paint. I like both pictures but decided to go with the black and white so that I could use more color with my flowers...
After the paint dried it was a little too white for me so I used my chalk ink to distress the frame a little. I added a chunky piece of lace on the inside edge just to add some more detail. I started laying out my flowers next. I always start with the largest and work my way to the smallest flowers and details. I added the photo to the back with washi tape so they could be changed out if you desired. I could have easily added a piece of ribbon to the top to hang it but these hang nicely by themselves.
Here are the 3 I have completed thus far. Thanks for looking. Karen
