Mixed Media Altered Frame

Hello again, everyone.............. This is Suzna here. 
I'm excited to share with you a mixed media frame, I made using the DMC new product beautiful oval resin frame. I love love this frame. I cant express my feeling here, Its beautiful and low coast, dont miss to buy this beautiful frame.

 All the product details are in end of this post. So keep finding them and make your own creation.

So lets discuss about how i made this ..........Okay

As usual i start with black gesso, before going any metallic paints use black gesso (alteration art). Thats give you awesome effect. Here i did 3 to 4 layer coloring (very thin coloring layers )

These are the first layer metallic paints

You can see green effect on my frame

Purple(Dark velvet) effect on my frame

2nd layer Metallic wax: Just random coloring on my frame

See my frame, how its look like. This is okay, but i want something more.  So i decided to add patina effect paints.

In between i am designing inside decoration on frame. So i took canvas sheet, cut it as oval. Glue down on 1mm chipboard. And again cut it as oval. Check the below images.

Adding metal charms : Prima Marketing-Finnabair Mechanicals Metal Embellishments

Theses are the 3rd layer paints.

Inside of frame i use Lindy's Spray. Or instead of canvas coloring use mixed media design papers.

Again and again decorating :-) with DMC mixed size pearl beads. Use glossy gel paste for perfect transparent glue.

Finally adding few words from Tim Holtz word stickers
I am filling empty space or use any fussy cut of your favorite image

And Finally i altered this beautiful frame.

I was inspired Finnabair mixed media projects :-)
I hope you enjoyed my project today
