Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments - Altered Metal Frame

You may have seen this as part of my Graphic 45 Design Team Audition post but I just had to give this project a special spotlight.  

This is probably one of my favorite altered projects to date.  The design of the Prima Metal Frame inspired me to create lots and lots of lovely layers.

Here you can see the detail of the layers and how I nestled the photo just inside of the frame.  I used the "Sweet Sentiments" collection from Graphic 45 because of the gorgeous images.  They fit perfectly with the photo.

I used a water distressing technique to turn my paper into draping for the inside of the frame.  I inked the edges with white liquid chalk ink.

I applied white liquid chalk ink to the frame to add highlights.  This is now one of my favorite new techniques to use on my projects.  I added a touch of glitter to the outside edges of the hearts just for a touch of shine.  I finished the frame by applying liquid pearl around the front edge of the frame.
