Arty Girlz challenge # 20 Frames

This week over on the Arty Girlz challenge blog we have set the theme as FRAMES.

so you could use cardstock to make a frame, do a stitched frame, a buttoned frame, alter a frame, doodle a frame.... there's so much you can do for this challenge and we can't wait to see what you come up with.
As usual you choose the format so you could make a card, atc, scrapbook layout whatever you decide it is up to you. so go check it out.

Heres mine


I bought theses papier mache frames from Hobby craft befor christmas with the intention of making something for the tree but it never happened.

I covered them both with Gesso and then inked them with purple blue and green whispers ink pads you get a lovely effect with the gesso which the camera aint showing. I cut the string of one and tied it into a bow and added it to the frame , cut the image out which is from crafty individuals and a piece of acetate for the the window and poped a magnet on the back and it now on my fridge and the other one i left as a hangie.
