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.
