An altered photo frame

I've got a new post up on the Papermaze blog

For my second project with these papers I wanted to create a little altered project as the sticker sheets from the Mama Razzi2 collection were perfect for little word and camera accents.
I found this frame at one of the cheapy stores (it was £1.49) and thought it would work for a series of pictures I had, so I set about altering it.

I took some sandpaper and just sanded off the surface of the frame so that the glue would adhere to it better, then I distressed the edges to give it a more shabby look
I cut 3 strips of paper after measuring the sections and then used the actual frame as a template for the openings. I cut these out, on the middle section I left one covered so that I would have a larger area for a focal point.
I added a camera cut from my cameo in black cardstock a wood veneer camera and added the oh snap and smile sticker underneath to create a "title" for the frame.

When I had finished adding this was the result

I love how these papers work so well together, adding pops of orange and red for contrast.
I still have one more project to share with you later in the month, meanwhile why not get yourself some of this great collection at the shop
Plus there is a SUMMER SALE on right now perfect for some great bargains!
