Here is another bit of upcycling that I have done. As you can see the frames were rather nice but a bit boring. As the themes in my craft room are blue, gingham and hearts I set about changing the look of them to match. First I removed the string and then gave them a base coat of acrylic paint. I then sprayed them with iridescent Spray & Sparkle from Crafter's Companion. While that was drying I die cut some hearts with gingham paper from Pink Petticoat to fit. I then stenciled my letters and coloured them with a promarker before die cutting and layering them onto the paper. Once inserted back into the frames I attached the gingham ribbon. Finally I attached some punched daisies with gem centres.
I also did the 'skint' sign to match.
