I made this frame up for the Ranger-Ink yahoo-group challenge for November. The challenge was to make a project using any of the paint products currently on the market by Ranger. I chose to use the daubbers. I used a wooden frame from Michaels and painted it with denim blue, then used the cloudy blue and lightly streaked over it in a cross-hatch fashion to give it a distressed look. I ran some letters for my daughter's initials through the harlequin embossing folder for some texture and then painted all of the grungeboard pieces in sailboat blue. Once dry, I sanded them a bit to distress them and then tied on some ribbons randomly and glued them on using the Ultimate Glue. I stacked a few paper and silk flowers, added brads, and adhered with glue-dots. I then rounded the corners of a black and white senior portrait of my beautiful baby-girl, Savanna to finish it off. ( Are you reading this Savanna?) I am pleased with how it came out and it was so quick and easy to do! What do you think of it?
