I am trying to add some cute things into my kitchen. When I was going through my monster file box, I came across a $1 wooden frame Shauna and I picked up at Michael's a while back. It got buried and forgotten. Well, as soon as I found it I grabbed a piece of scrapbook paper and went to town!
Here it is before, with my supplies:
I painted the frame's back and sides with acrylic craft paint. I mixed some blue and green to get the color I wanted. When that was dry, I laid the frame upside down on the scrapbook paper and traced around it. Then I cut out the paper and used Mod Podge to adhere it to the frame. I then took a sanding block and sanded the edges so none of the paper was hanging over the edges of the frame. To give it a little more "oomph", I took a blue ink pad and inked the edges of the frame. I love distressing, whether it is with ink, paint, sanding, etc.
Here it is, all ready for a cute picture:
