DECOR REDO #2 TWO PEACOCK PRINT FRAMES
WOW, my last post was almost a month ago but I had a great reason!
I was planning for my son's 8th birthday which happened to fall between 2 great events I got to be a part of. First of being a week long church fundraising sale, my son's birthday and then straight into a week of fireworks! Not to mention we got away for a few days to Eureka, got back Sat (9th) and am now ready to get back to my ROOM!
This weekend I'm showing you 2 frames I worked on in June,
items (B)$1.24+tx and (D) $1.49+tx
Working on B and D
I took the frame, glass, mat & print apart ( I tossed the print).
I decided on a deep purple so I mixed the gold, black and nightsky together.
I then mixed Inca gold (brighter gold), red & black to get a copper color which worked!
I ended up not liking it lol so I went back to the gold/black mixture instead.
Also I sanded lightly with a fine grain to get some of the clear stain off and help the paint adhere better.
Again, I already had the sandpaper.
FRAME + MAT AFTER -
I found a cool black & white peacock online,
printed on photo paper and inserted to complete it.
ITEM (D)- I also took the glass out of the dark brown"tray" frame.
I had purple spray paint from a previous project. I thought I'd try it, but I didn't like it!
So I pulled out a few tropical blues & black to cover the purple.
I left the mat alone. I inserted the glass, mat and 4 different pics of feathered hair pieces I found online.
I really love my printer, it's much cheaper than buying prints!
PS. Dollar tree had photo paper for $1!
