Chris's Birthday


It's my friend Chris's birthday today. I made her this frame from pieces of cardboard Maz gave me. I used juniper acrylic paint to cover it and then spritzed it with a perfect pearls, gum arabic and water mixture to give it a bit of a shine. I distressed each of the tags added stamping, embellishments, crackle glaze to them, rolled the string in walnut stain distress ink, added a few washers to the edges of the frame which I coloured with alcohol inks and stamped the phrase 'where has the time gone?' a couple of times on the frame - I'm sure she'll thank me for that!!!!!

Hope she likes it

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRIS - xxxxx

I am also submitting this piece for this weeks Tuesday Taggers, as Zoe who belongs to the Lotstodo Forum, has become a DT member and this week is her first week so I wanted to support her. The theme is 'time'.
