Lotstodo Week 4 - You've Been Framed


I tore a piece of newspaper to make a frame, added an image, a newspaper flower, a piece of grungeboard and 3 brads. I used a variety of shades of brown inks.


This started life as a red plastic frame. I painted it with copper acrylic dabbers. I wrapped wire and beads around the frame before using rub offs to add the word 'inspired' and then added an image and a piece of ribbon.

That newspaper piece is good - I like the tones and the way you've put it together.

Love the frame and the wire wrapping. It makes that image stand out and the word matches perfectly.
