"Generation Frame"

This photo is a three generation photo of my son Matt with his dad and grandma. This was probably one of the last photos of them all together. It gave me great joy to do this project and brought tears to my eyes.

I used the GCD Artsy Urban Collection - Colored Birds and the Ella Blue Collection- Grace and Raleigh. My frame is from Creative Imaginations. I first painted the frame using Cremcoat Spice Brown, once it was dried I paper craft the front of the frame, inked the edges with Chestnut brown ink and added lace, flowers, gemstones. I made some of fabulous spiral flowers that was featured in a previous tutorial, and added some spiral twigs from some flowers I bought from Hobby Lobby. I made some leaves using some sheer green ribbon. Hope you enjoy and try making your own decorated frames.
