This week I am going to share a fun project with you. I came up with a way to add some texture and interest to a plain, unfinished frame that you get at a craft store.
I had two frames left from a stack that were given to me. YAY FOR FREEBIES! I wanted to do something fun with them, so here is what I came up with.
I started with a plain 12X12 wood frame just like this:
Then I used Mod Podge and applied the cardstock to the frame. I cut the center where the photo opening is with an razor blade. After the Mod Podge was dry, I painted over the top of the frame with paint. I let that dry, and then I went back and squirted a few squirts of Walnut Ink on the top and rubbed it around with a rag until I got the look I wanted.
One frame turned out a little bit darker than the other. I am not sure which one is my favorite! I really like both of them :)
