An Ugly Duckling



When I am out thrifting I am always on the look out for something that just needs a little loving.  Something that needs to be turned from an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan.



As soon as I saw this frame I knew what I wanted to do with it.  2 years ago I saw a similar collage in a beautiful scrapbooking shop in Queensland called Bella Paperie.  Ever since then I have been looking for the perfect frame to create my own.



I lovingly painted it, sanded it and waxed it


It really was a labour of love.



 Then I collected a lot of my vintage laces and trims



Along with some beaded and sequined pieces


And some vintage brooches.  I collaged them on top of some gorgeous Stamperia paper



And then it became this.  It is now hanging on the wall in my little studio.  I am totally in love with it.

I made a process video if you want to see the different stages.  You can watch it HERE.
