WOYWW – Altered Picture Frame

Altered Photo Frame

‘Tis the season for handmade gifts and as you may suspect, many of Julia’s elves have been burning the midnight oil in WOYWW workspaces around the globe!

Last week I shared a cute little Altered Tin that would be perfect for tucking away a gift card or two. This week I’m invoking nostalgia with a coordinating Altered Picture Frame that can hold a favorite photograph or a precious card!

For your creative pleasure, I invite you to join me at these creative challenge sites:

Speaking of creativity, if you’re looking for a new journal or sketch book to start the New Year with, check out these fabulous blank books!

    Hi! I’m Lizzie (Lizziemade #111), just getting around to visiting some of the WOYWW Desks (it was a busy week!). As my number is all “1’s”, I thought it would be fun to visit all the folks whose numbers end in a “1” this time – so here I am, at #1, Create with Joy – good to meet you!

    I like your picture frame. Wouldn’t have thought of using a “text” decorated paper – it looks really good. Love the little flowers too – and that you inked them and curled them, to make them look pretty.
    I’ll go and look at the matching embellished tin now, I think!
    Merry Christmas!


  36. Chris F says:

    Thanks for playing along this week with my Amusing Challenges – your homemade flower is great! Love your frame and matching flowers! 🙂
