Try it on Tuesday: Alter it - Re vamp a Frame
The Craft Barn
is sponsoring this weeks challenge, which is making an altered frame.

I Re vamped an IKEA framed mirror.
I started by carefully cutting the glue away around the mirror (in the back) and removing it from the frame, setting it aside so it wouldn't get messy or damaged.
I then 'wallpapered' the frame with textured and flocked patterned paper (unsure of brand, stash grab).
Blingage is Prima (cut apart).
All the Collage elements were 1st fussy cut, then coated in 3D Crystal Lacquer, as was the quote strip.
Finishing by reattaching the mirror to the frame.
