Mixed Media Makeover challenge at Anything But Cute

Hello, crafty friends! It's time for our challenge #5 at Anything But Cute mixed media challenge blog! Our talented hostess Niki has chosen the theme 'Mixed Media Makeover'.

Pull out an old card, tag, project, masterboard or embellishment that you weren't completely happy with or never completely finished. Niki wants you to recycle it. We all make "mistakes" with our art right? Now's your chance to fix it. Redo it, hide the mistake, make it bigger, make it better, make it more beautiful or rip it apart and use the pieces! Give it a mixed media makeover! For this challenge you will need to include a before picture so we can see what you started with.

Here is what I started with:
Some time ago I created an art journal page which I never liked. For this amazing challenge I decided to finally recycle it.

Altered photo frame

Hello, crafty friends! I am back today to proudly announce my Guest DT appearance at Rhedd's Creative Spirit for their September challenge.
I would like to encourage you to check out their amazing challenge blog and get a lot of inspiration from the wonderful DT! 

I was inspired by Finnabair's art (what a surprise haha) and decided to alter a photo frame that I bought some time ago at our local gift shop. I put one of my downloaded vintage photos (Paper Whimsy) inside of the frame and started adding embellishments. I used some metal roses, paper flowers and even some of my fabric ones. I also added some small wooden details. When I finished with the embellishing I covered the whole frame with a coat of black gesso. I used a lot of metallic paints, Inka Golds and my antiquing pastes to achieve that metallic look and I like how this turned out. 

I'll be back on Saturday to share with you my new project for our challenge #5 at Anything But Cute

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving sweet comments! 
Have a great day!
