Mini Project #2- more frames

Yep, I have more frames... I told you it was a humongous bag! P.S. Do you love Get Craftlicious' new look?! I sure do, It's much more clean AND some of my fav colors! A big thank you goes to Andrea Wanlass from Anlyn Photography for her help with Photoshop and taking a few of the photos in this post.

Here are some before shots:



So this bottom picture isn't the exact collage frame I had... but it's pretty close. I am not a fan of collage frames, so I needed to spice it up.

Items needed : Old frames that you hate (or something from Goodwill)
                        Spray Paint
                        Sandpaper
                        Scrapbook paper


I'm normally a Krylon girl, but Home Depot didn't have the color I was looking for. I opted for Rust-oleum. It's a pretty great alternative. =)




After!! :


Spray painted both, the white one with Krylon in Satin white the blue is Rust-oleum in Aqua.


I didn't have an 8x10" picture to put in here, and then it hit me... throw in some scrapbook paper! I love the way they both turned out.

Now for my favorite... This frame turned out better than I could have hoped. Photo credit : Anlyn Photography.


Not cute... at all. When I was first married, I loved it because it's the Tuscan style that I thought was amazing. Well, it's not. So, I grabbed some spray paint again... I'm totally in love with this aqua blue color right now.


Such a pretty color... especially for summer. After it was spray painted, I was just going to leave it for a glossy finish, but my antique-y side got the best of me. I grabbed a piece of sandpaper and went to town!



Didn't they turn out great?!! Again, a big thank you to Andrea Wanlass with Anlyn Photography. She's an amazing photographer and friend. Be sure to check out and follow her blog www.anlynphotography.blogspot.com
