Altered Art Frame & Toothpicks

Up today at Practical Scrappers we have one of our brand new design team members, Kimberly, to share with you an altered art frame.  Please give her a warm welcome as she shares the first of many projects to come.  Without further ado, here is Kimberly...

One of my favorite things to play with is a frame or a home decor project.  My LSS just started to carry these wonderful easel frames.   I couldn't wait to decorate one.  Here is a photo of the supplies I used and the naked frame.
I used all Glitz Design Products from their Vintage Blue Collection.  I also added 3 toothpicks, since I wanted to add a little something to yesterday's post regarding Frugal finds.  Please check out yesterday's post too.  The other products I used which are not pictured:  2 Maya Road mini Spools, and Tim Holtz distress tea dye ink, faded jeans distress stain and his dies.

Here are a few photos of my finished frame.





The tooth picks worked out perfectly for my homemade banners!  



**Designer projects are not always linked in our posts, but you can always find their blogs in our sidebar or in the staff tab**
