Hello Art Anthology Friends and Fans! Jenn here today sharing my aged, altered frame.
I have had this photo of my beloved late grandmother just waiting to create a display piece. When I found this frame I knew instantly what I wanted to create! I will display this in my home proudly in her memory.
I started by applying a very thick layer of gesso all over the frame. Next, I added some crackle effect paste here and there with a palette knife. After the crackle was dry I sprayed the frame with AA Colorations in Sky, dried and followed with AA Colorations Sedona. I added AA Minx in Panache and dried. Several layers of sprays, alternating between the colors and drying created the aged appearance I wanted. In between colors I also drybrushed a bit of white. I splattered white in the end as well.
I then added some chipboard leaves(dyed), die cut leaves, and florals from Reneabouquets for a feminine look. Some mini art stones were added for texture and a few pearl beads. The sentiment stickers were my final touch!
