I started out with this simple plastic frame. It was cheap plastic but I was determined to make it something special – something gift worthy.
I would also like to invite you to visit my friends at the Creative Christmas Link Party below.
What I Used:
- A cheap plastic picture frame. Mine had a divider creating the illusion that there were three separate picture frames
- Americana Chalky Type paint in Everlasting
- Decoart Americana Acrylic Paints in red and yellow
- Decoart Dazzeling Metallics in Black Pearl
- PicMonkey to create the graphic
- Mini Christmas wreath
The How To:
Below you can see the back of it. I was so excited to start I didn’t get a shot of the front. It is cheap black plastic. They seem to show up like weeds in my house.
In fact you can download this one that I made. I chose the De Walpergen Pica font for this project. And no the J is not a mistake, it was designed to look that way. Here is a tutorial on how to use the fonts.
I also should mention that the frame came with a divider creating the illusion of three photos. And now you know why I chose the word “JOY”.
Can you see that nice sheen on the plastic frame? It doesn’t look plastic anymore. It has texture and depth. And even some imperfections which only add to the charm.
