I decided to put to work a couple boxes of old picture frames that have been gathering dust in the closet & garage. So I dusted them off, spray painted them- most in black, matt or glossy- then applied white paint to tone down & distress the black- or on the shiny smooth ones I added gold paint around to give some character. Next I'm putting some images on the inside w/scrapbook paper, cardstock, Cricut cuts, etc. The larger frames will be sold at Art In the Park (an annual craft fair we have in Robertson Co, TN) as dry erase boards and the smaller ones as home decor items.
Here's a couple I've done so far- this is a home decor item as the frame is 5x7 and also chunky- so would not make for a dry erase board very well
Here are a couple I did with die cut butterflies using CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. I cut out several graduating sizes and then colored them with reinker mixed with alcohol. I had fun mixing & blending the colors onto each piece. This way no 2 are the same. I chose a couple coordinating scrapbook papers and cut them to size, placed the butterflies, stamped a sentiment & then put them in the frames. These will be dry erase boards. I really like how the butterflies turned out- I think they add so much character- the trick with coloring them is to place one color ink below the cut & spray the other on top- moving the piece around in the puddle a bit for it to soak in at various places
