I had a small wooden picture frame waiting to be altered and decided to turn it into a mini memo board.
Paint the frame in a base coat. I used a light blue from a tester pot of paint.
Take some modeling paste and some acrylic paint (I used teal blue). Put some of each out on a craft mat to mix the colour.
The colour of the paint tends not to be lightened too much by the paste. You could paint over the modeling paste afterwards but I wanted the texture paste to be a different colour on the top of the frame so I mixed my paste directly.
I don’t have a pallet knife so I used an old card to spread the paste through the mask onto the frame in one or two places.
I gathered embellishments I thought I may use (I didn’t end up using all of these ones and added a few more along the way). I inked all the tickets and note cards up to age them and added some faint crackle stamping on some of them too.
I put this all together and called it done. Here you can see a close up of the embellishment cluster on the frame….
I hope you enjoyed this quick and fun way to alter a picture frame into a little memo board. You could use any size frame for this of course and scale it up quite a lot!
