The day has come, and Lindy's Stamp Gang has released it's new Starburst Stains Color Set: Summer of '89! I altered this cute frame using some of the new colors.They brought out the accents in the picture inside the frame. Unfortunately, I cannot show that picture, because this is a gift for someone, and I want it to be a surprise... she watches my videos and follows my blog, so I had to make sure I covered my tracks. No peeking, right? LOL. I hope she likes it when she receives it.
It took me some time to figure this baby out (this is my first altered frame ever), because believe it or not, my mojo has left me. I think the mini album that I'm currently working on (and have yet to finish!) has sucked all the inspiration and creativity out of me! Crazy, I know, but I tell you, it has been hard to get anything crafty accomplished lately...just to let you know, I ruined a wood frame before I started this one...I had to literally put it away (close to a trash can lol) and start over. Thank God, this one turned out way better on my first attempt!
I used three of the colors of the new Summer of '89 Set, and I only wish you could see the picture inside the frame, so you would know how perfect these colors were for this project. I guess you're going to have to just take my word for it! LOL
This is the first time I've done any of the crackle paint too, and I love the look, without any contrasting colors, like it's usually done. It's a different distressed look.
As usual, I made a tutorial on how I got the wood so shimmery and crackled, and you can check that out HERE.
I hope you are excited about these colors, and give them a try.
WARNING: you'll get hooked on them LOL!
Oh, I forgot to ask, how do you like the new look of the blog? I'd love to hear what you think!
