The Story of Three Frames.

These frames came to me from my Mother-In-law, she got them for a steal at a thrift store I believe, though I do not remember the exact price. She told me she knew I would know just what to do with them...Thank you MIL.

The largest of the three was paired with an old cork board, some ribbon, co-ordinating fabric, and buttons...Since the cork board was slightly larger I had to cut it down to size, after that it was all paint and hot glue gun....I think you all know where I am going with this.

Now we have a Black & White vintage looking memory board.

Perfect for over Mic's desk...
Matches her, ummmmm Dr Who Figures??
Ok so The Dr and the Cybermen seem to be invading rural France this week...Or maybe they are having a Pokemon battle???

The other two frames, also got a coat of paint.
More of a milky wash actually, to allow the gold paint to show a little.

Using foam cord, I created backings for both frames.
Then used the fabric from daughters graduation gown to create the "artwork" within the frames.
