From left to right top row - 1.painted bg, scroll stamp and then some 3d toppers on this one.2.Painted bg then scroll stamps. angelina fibres along the bottom and embellished with seashells.3 Purple bg, embellished with jewels and has stamped crackle effect on it.
bottom row 1.painted burnt orange bg, crackle stamped and then painted foam letters and stuck them on. 2.Painted bg, then I added aluminum tape which had been run through my cuttlebug and embellished with fabric flowers and swavorski crystals.3. green painted bg, added lace and buttons to keep it simple.

Again left to right top row 1.Painted bg, crackle stamp; again aluminum tape through cuttlebug and then embellished with flowers and crystals. 2 Painted bg, found jewellery pieces and heart word stamped and edged with gold krylon pen. 3.Distressed bg with friend and friendship stamped on it embellished with silver buttons.
Bottom row 1.Distressed bg with crackle stamp, and foam stamp words painted to embellish. 2 Brown bg, edged with flower ribbon and then fabric flowers and crystals to embellish.3.Finally, a plain distressed painted bg with crackle stamp and a single found piece to embellish.
So there you have them - hope you like them, I enjoyed making them, absolutely fabulous to get into my room and CREATE!! Joy of joys.
Oh and I am so excited I have booked up for a Craft weekend next March...I am so excited; I shall be going with Gabby and Lorraine so it should be a blast. I am so looking forward to being taught rather than my usual muddle through to see what happens :-) Happy Dawn!!!

I like all of the ones in the top picture (especially the angelina fibers, very nice!) but the second picture, well I LOVE them. I don't know if it's the colors or that they are a bit more distressed? You know, I've seen frames like these in the stores for lot of $$. They are just fabulous Dawn!

Wow Dawn...you have been a buzy little art bee...and these frames are so beautiful...What is this Craft Fair that you girls are going to? Sounds like it could be fun...I know of some "professional" artist that don't "muddle through" as well as you do...your work is fantastic...Maybe you should open a Etsy shop and sell your frames... just an idea...Luv Mum

Delightful Eye-Candy for sure!!
