More Home Decor

 
Before
 
 
 
 
 
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.
