“Love” Altered Photo Frame | Donna Espiritu

Hello, again Bad Girlies! It’s Donna here with a new project. I recycled an old metallic neon green photo frame and turned it into something a bit shabby chic.

This is how the photo frame looked like before the makeover. 

I painted the entire surface with gesso. After it has dried, I used Fallen Angel to paint over the surface with green color and used two coats to cover the entire thing white.

Then, I dry brushed Couture Pink, Broken Doll, and Kiss & Don’t Tell acrylic paints.

To add more texture to the frame, I used the Glass Bead Gel and brushed randomly all over the frame. I also added a white lace, using the Clear Gesso to adhere to the painted frame.

Once everything has dried, I started placing the photo and embellished a bit with fussy cut butterflies and some ephemera pieces from the With Love collection from Kaisercraft.

Here are detailed shots of the finished project…

That’s all from me today. I hope this inspired you to be creative with your Haute Mess paints and mediums! Thanks for dropping by and see you in my next post.
