Shabby frame



Hello ... are you well?
I am doing so much better since I got my crutches ... much less pain in the foot thank goodness ...
I have a decorated frame to share with you today ... and this actually fit three challenges ... 
The lovely team at Papercrafts Star are looking for Rustic this week ... whilst those amazing ladies at CR84FN have this lovely colour palette


and not forgetting the wonderful up-cycling team at LESSology ... where the theme is floral
So here is my project ....


I replaced the little glass insert with thick card and slightly distressed the frame ... then it was ready to decorate


A handmade rose with a gorgeous image from Iralamija's Etsy shop ... how I love her images and  she is also running a competition to win 12 collages from the shop ... so I will be linking this up for my chance to win


Some up-cycled corrugated cardboard painted with white acrylic ... a hand cut banner and a few other bits and pieces and this little creation is now in the hands of it's new owner ... my sweet friend Sara ... it is just her colours and style


Thank you so much for stopping by ... and for all your encouraging comments ... I truly appreciate your friendship

Have a wonderful day

~ Ros ~
