The year is slowly coming to an end and how else could I end it other than with a frame. I started a distress crackle frame obsession not long after dicovering blogs, Hels' in particular, and I have since tried many techniques and made many more frames, most of which are hanging in my living room.
So I gathered 3 challenge themes and came up with this little rustic and old, music inspired frame. I textured the whole thing in terra paste and stamped a music stamp into it. Then I painted it in bronze paint and used a blue patina activator over the top. This stuff is from Modern Masters and I love it. Their rust paint is also fab!!!
I rolled up a few sheet music bits and distressed them and I just had to add a few Tim Holtz tickets as I just got the die and stamps for Christmas. And the quote is from the song Listening to you from The Who's Tommy rock opera, my all time favourite. So combining all these fab things created this lovely frame, it's gonna go on my wall with all the others.
