Altered frame with Candy

Hello everyone.

Welcome to another month full of creativity.
Today I have altered a 10 x 12 inch canvas and an old plasic frame
I had in my stash.

I have created this frame for my mum for Christmas,
I am sure she will love it.


Here is the mood board I got my inspiration from



I firstly covered the canvas with white gesso and also the frame
as it was blue I had to use a few coats to cover it.
When the canvas was dry I glued on the 3 pieces of lace using matt medium.
Then added some spray, only a light cover.
I then glued on the frame and used clamps to hold until it dried.
I waited overnight so it was really dry.


 


Add the flowers with a strong glue.
Then I added some white gesso and prills
to the edges of the flowers and leaves.


The photo measures 3 x 5 inches
I sanded around the edges then addes some
white gesso with my finger then more prills.
I cut 3 lace flowers in half then glued them under my photo.
And I raised my photo to make it pop.
