Upcycled Photo Frame

Hi everyone!! Today I am sharing a photo frame that I upcycled. It was a small square handmade picture frame, with plain bronze paper on it. I thought to make good use of it by experimenting with some mixed media.

I glued scraps of PP on the frame with some mod podge. Coated the PP with some silver acrylic paint. Stamped randomly on the surface and attached some washi tape here and there. Then I used some waste material like red bull lid, broken bracelet, bolts, etc. The two hearts are made from perfume bottle boxes which had shiny cover on them.

Then I used a stencil to create a pattern with modeling paste on two corners of the frame. Once the paste dried up, I colored it using distress inks. Added a sentiment and black pearls to finish the project. Hope you all like my creation.
