A FAST altered frame :)

Hi FANTASTIC followers!

 I hope you are enjoying your Sunday. I am! I am sitting here with my family-although we are all doing our own individual things, we are together and I just love being with my "boys" (My husband is in there too!) Sooo onto the crafty :) I had created this for a friend of mine.. It was one of those if you post on my Facebook page, I will make something for you before the year is over.. Well, I did it! I mailed it and she received it BEFORE the new year... but not too long before! So here it is.... I will describe what I did underneath the frame :)

I took one of the Michael's $1 frames and used a sponge brush and painted it with a light coat of Claudine Hellmuth's sable brown paint. I LOVE HER PAINT! It's like BUTTER - rich and creamy! I then used a piece of cream lace ribbon and glued it to the frame. I then took the word treasure from my word stash and glued it to a piece of textured green card stock and glued the word to it. I took a few a few pearls and put them under that, pop dotted it and placed it on the frame :) Last but not least, I took the rosette ribbon and realized it wasn't quite the color I wanted it to be. I took Glimmer Mist and sprayed a non stick craft sheet. I then took the ribbon and soaked up the color and let it dry for about a half hour. I then glued it to the top of the lace ribbon and there ya go :) Pretty simple but I love how it came out. My friend wanted to put a picture in it but she isn't sure what she is going to put in there yet. Thanks for coming by and have a wonderful day!
