Altered Picture Frame

Hey blogger friends!

Hope you are having a fabulous day!

Work is hosting a two day Secret Santa gift exchange with a very limited budget.  Of course I started looking around my craft room for ideas and came across a plain wood frame I had purchase months ago at half price at Hobby Lobby. 



Using pattern paper from m stash, I started to create this altered picture frame.


I mixed yellow paint with Tim Holt's vintage photo distress ink and painter the back and edges of the frame, all areas not covered with paper.


About half way through the project, the light click above my head. Why not make it a 2013 Calendar? Co-worker can use it later for a picture frame, if she wishes.


I found the perfect size calendar, a freebie from At Studio D.


Add some flowers and Amy Tangerine numbers


More flowers, a banner and some pearls. And...


ta-da!  An altered picture frame/calender.

Hope you enjoyed today project.

Until next time - happy scrappin'! ~ Carol
