Altered Frame for New Baby

Adear friend is due in a month, and being one that adores handmade things, I thought this lil frame will be ideal for her baby's nursery..

I do hope she'll like it as much as I enjoyed making it for her..

Materials Used : MM Acrylic Paint, Ranger Crackle Paint, MLS Spike PP, Melissa Frances PP, Graphic 45 PP, MS Garden Trellis Punch

It's very easy to make, just follow the steps below:

1) Paint the entire frame with Making Memories' Acrylic Paint

2) Smooth crackle paint all over but be sure to leave some gaps here and there (for a worn out look)

3) Cut out the shapes you desire from any patterned paper (I've used MLS)

4) Punch out a long strip using any border punch for fencing (I've used MS Garden Trellis)

5) Cut out enough PP (MF in mine) to cover the window of the frame

6) Cut out the nursery rhyme from the Graphic 45 PP

Easy Peasy? You bet! :)
