My FMIL began decorating her digital photo frame. It was so beautiful that it inspired me to decorate my own. She went with deep jewel tones and black, so I went to the opposite spectrum with white and peach.
I started by removing the frame from the main base of the photo frame. I didn't want to get anything on the screen (since I'm a complete mess when I'm crafting). After the screen was set aside, I coated my entire frame with yellow acrylic paint. It took 3 coats to get the opaque finish that I needed. Don't worry, this isn't how it's going to look when it's done.
I then covered the frame with a thick coating of crackle medium. Once that had dried completely, I layered on a layer of white. Then it was time to set back and watch the magic. When the white paint cracked, the yellow was able to show through nicely.
While I was waiting on the crackle to take effect, I gathered all my materials. I used flowers from Michael's and Recollections, trinkets from Blue Moon Beads and Traditions, and ribbon from Michael's.
This little locket is absolutely adorable. Since it's see through, I painted the inside with yellow so it would bring attention to the detailing on it.
I added little circles of pearls here and there and I love the light vintage feel that it gave my overall look.
My FMIL gave me some trinkets to use out of her own stash. A lot of her trinkets actually come off of old bracelets that she finds at yard sales and thrift stores.
When I purchased these beautiful Recollections butterflies, they were very yellow. I wanted to warm one up a little bit, so I sprayed it with Tattered Angels Peach Delight. It gave it just the tint I was wanting.
I had so much fun doing this! And the great thing is, now my digital photos will flip through such a beautiful scene. I never would've thought to play with a digital photo frame. Isn't my wonderful FMIL so inspiring?! I just had to get a picture of them side by side so you can see the stark differences between them. So, I'll leave you with that photo.
