A frame ... on a frame ... on a frame

Hi there ... 
I hope you all had a good weekend ... 
I was so sorry to hear of the tornado in Kansas and my thoughts and prayers are with those of you who may have been affected or have friends and families there ...

Today of course is a new challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog ... and we have Cheryl hosting for us ... she has come up with a brilliant challenge ... to alter or use a Frame ...
I've been playing a bit with frames lately ... but this week I decided to alter a frame I have had for so long ... nothing too fussy ... the frame is ornate as it is ... 


I gave the frame a wash of white acrylic first ... and behind the glass I inserted some pretty dottie paper from Prima's Botanical Collection ...


The canvas frame is then layered over the glass and on top of that a gorgeous butterfly frame ( a gift from Stella) ... was painted and glittered and adhered.
In the centre is a flower of delicate roses with one of my earring centres hot glued on ...


a few embellishments including ribbons, rubon, buttons, pearl and a diamante and my frame is done ...

So now it's over to you ... if you are in need of inspiration pop over to the blog and check out the DT work and that of our talented GD Colleen Dietrich ... and we have sweet June Lanum as our sponsor this week ... followers will know that June was on our DT and regrettably had to step back ... so we are thrilled to have her sponsor us again this week
Thank you so much for your continued support and your comments ... 

Keep safe
