WHAT IS OLD IS NEW AGAIN! UPCYCLE



Recently I was cleaning out my scraproom, and came across a small gold frame that was supposed to be used as a cross stitch embroidery hoop.  I took out the cardboard and the plastic "cover" - and painted over the ugly old fashioned gold frame with Derivan Black Paint (as most of you know this is my fave paint) available from Molossi.  I then left that to dry and cut out an oval piece of old book paper from my stash, and covered it with mod podge and allowed that to dry. 
I then glued this onto the backing cardboard and glued the Manorhouse "Dream" diecut embellishment available  from Molossi and attached 3 antique looking flower embellishments also from Manorhouse available at Molossi.
I now have an upcycled piece for my sudio - please let me know what you think of it!
