Altered Photo frame/tray

Evening all from my corner of England where it has been warm and sunny..but a bit it was the perfect day to hide away in my craft room and finish an unfinished project!

So... here it is.. a new photo frame/ altered wooden house shaped tray.

First I covered it in gesso then layered up the following: Pink tissue paper using pva glue, Paperartsy Sherbert chalk paint and then I dry brushed some white chalk paint over the top.

I left it all to dry in between each stage. Then I cut the polka dot paper and cut to fit.. doing the same with the photos.

Then I added all the trims, lace, twine, buttons and bows etc.  I then used some word stickers to fill in all the other sections as I didn't want photos in all of them.

Finally I thought it was missing something, so I decided to cover the whole of the roof with buttons.. that got rid of a lot of my pink button stash (at last!) 

Anyway.. here it is.. do hope you like.

I have a LO to add later too.. so do remember to pop back soon.. and remember I'm coming up for my 200th post so I will be doing a random drawer of my if you're not a add yourself and you may have a little treat in store! 

Thanks for stopping by!

    I'm sorry I haven't been around for a while I got a concussion that lasted longer than I would ever have believed and then a big project at work so I have neglected my own and others blogs.
    Your granddaughter, it was Amber I think I saw on fb? She will be very pleased. X
