Altered vintage and sewing inspired photo frame!

Hi all!  I'm here with an altered frame from EcoGreen using lots of vintage bits and gorgeous products from Want2Scrap©

As a base I started with a plain frame from EcoGreen and then prepped it with the following layers...Eco Green Spackle and gold acrylic paint plus a layer of sewing pattern tissue applied with EcoGreen Artist Medium in gloss.

Once the frame was base prepped, I could go to town with pretties like Maxxi Girl Pearls - White, Decorative Pin Jewels - Set of 6, and flower ribbons in multiple sizes.

I had fun sneaking in some sewing oriented items like handmade zipper flowers (see tutorial here), measuring tape pinwheel, sewing pattern tissue flower, and a mini wooden spool without making this frame sewing "themed".

Lots of texture and glitter for this frame!

Pearl "studs" tack down the corners of the mitered zipper inner frame that declares just where this family hails from.  This was an incredibly fun project to make.  Just LOVE the layers!  Want2Scrap is chock full of pretties from your next piece of altered art!  I hope you'll try your hand at a project like this!
