Framed with Beauty

Introducing our very first challenge at:
Our challenges are always Anything Goes, so you can create
ANYTHING you wish, surprise us.


My project for this first challenge is a photo frame, found in 
my stash of goodies. This I painted with anything I could get my hands
 on in my stash.  I kept painting lightly over each  layer, while still wet, in different colours.  Once dry I added Inka Gold over some
 of the areas and rusting powder.
My flowers were made using the Heartfelt Creations  
Flowering Dogwood stamps and dies.
This gorgeous image can be found here...


We would love to see you spread the word of our new challenges,
which are monthly,  become a follower and show us YOUR
creative skills. We all learn from each other I believe.

See you at the challenge at
