Grandpa's frame


This is an altered frame that I made my grandpa for Christmas. I started with an unfinished wood frame that I got at HL, I sanded it a little bit, and sponged on Tim holtz distress inkz in vintage photo. I rubbed some of the ink off in spot to make it look really distressed. The metal plate is from Monday's Metal. It was a light cream color so I inked it with vintage photo too. I added the brown letters from Remarks, and sprayed it with matte sealer too keep it all on! The ribbon was just in a jar so who knows where it came from.....This picture was taken last Christmas while I was showing him the scrapbook I had made him. My grandpas the best!!!!! I hope everyone is recovering nicely from the Christmas mayhem! I did a little post Christmas shopping today. I got some great deals!! I'm off to finish cleaning my studio. If i can keep it clean longer then 5 min Ill put some pictures up!!!!
