Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with an altered frame.
A plain wood frame is the perfect starting point for anything you can imagine. I wanted to document a night out with my son and his girlfriend after his college graduation so I decided an altered frame was in order.
I began by gessoing the frame so the Crafter’s Inks would POP.
Using Ann Butler’s Faux Quilting Stamps, 1″ Squares, stamp the first layer with Aquamarine Ink. Stamp a second layer on top of the first layer with Blueberry Ink.
Stamp the second stamp along the inside and outside of the frame. Dab Blueberry Ink around the frame.
For a masculine effect, add metal rings to the corners.
Die cut gears and ink with Blueberry Ink. Adhere them to the lower left corner.
Ink a chipboard arrow with Blueberry Ink and add it to the upper left corner. Place some metal rings on top.
Tie twine around tickets and add to the right bottom corner. Ink some chipboard words and add on top of the tags.
Sweet altered frame, isn’t it?
