Wow, hasn't it been hot, hot, hot this week? Thankfully it is getting a little cooler in my part of the country ... less humid and sticky which means I can get into my room of stash and play again!
A few weeks ago I was very inspired by Linda Brown from LB Crafts ... she is so clever and showed me how to alter a plain old photoframe using Ten Seconds Studio's metals and some heavenly metallic paints.
Here is my take on the frame....I used copper coloured metal for the base and then once I had marked a template, I used various molds and freehand decorating using the Wheel tools.
Once the metal was embossed, debossed and generally teased into the style I wanted, I slapped a lot of metallic paint onto the metal .... using Cut n Dry foam to do this gets a really good coverage and also gets into the nooks and crannies too :O))
Tomorrow will mark the return of the Sunday Stamper and I have another piece of artwork that has Ten Seconds Studio stuff on it...along with some other bits n bobs...so I would love to see you here to join in with the challenge...am keeping the theme under my hat at the moment but I will still be using song titles for the name of the challenge...well, some things are just better left the same aren't they? LOL
Thanks for looking and have a good day!
