Altered frame ... more from the stash

A real quick project, as I was testing to see how Tim Holtz's crackle paint looked.

This started as just one of those $1 plain wooden frames from Michael's. I painted it with a thick layer of crackle paint, let it dry overnight and then embellished. All the embellishments came from my stash, the purple/green drawer of the Iris cart. I love that I'm using hoarded stuff.

It's a frame for a picture of my daughter. I made it for a friend, who gave her the dress she's wearing. Thanks for the dress Gage!


  1. What a beautiful little girl!! Nice frame, too! I was curious about the crackle paint. Have tried it (not the Tim Holtz brand) on furniture without much success. Your frame, however, looks great! TFS, friend!

  2. Oh, this looks great! I love making frames, and this would be a really inexpensive, yet beautiful way to do it! I am sure your friend will love it.

  3. Your little one is just beautiful and the frame to show off her dress looks fantastic! I'm sure the gift will be very well received!!

    Great work and thanks for sharing!

  4. Love this frame! I have also been dipping into my "stash" lately and coming up with some fun stuff! I've yet to try a frame, but need to snag some of these $1 ones next time I'm at Michaels!
