Alter it with Wings

This week over at TIOT is my turn to pick and I love altering anything I can lay my hands on lol and I was supposed to make a frame in September for someone and I just had no idea what to make, so keeping it in mind what I have to make I set this theme which is WINGS and believe it after I set this my project turned out a bit different I wanted to but over all I'm very pleased with it and sad I have to send it off.
Here is my picture frame
Tim Holtz stamps and inks
TLC Creation digi WA
Butterfly stamps
Marienne swirl die cut
Old pages from a book
Acrylic paint
Debbi Moore brown embossing powder

I started to paint my pages with white acrylic pain as I have no gesso yet then I stamped the swirl onto it all over once it was dry. I was going to paper mache it but haven't got enough PVA glue as I used a whole tub the other day to alter something else and still haven't bought a new tub of PVA glue so I ended up just gluing the paper onto the frame then as an extra decoration I used other stamps to decorate it. The angle sentiment is from TLC and I dug out an old set of butterfly stamps (one of my 1st set of stamps lol ) and used two of those as well. The wing is stuck behind, well the back is still a bit messy, so got to make a quick frame for the back but that's only gonna take few min now. All of the images embossed with brown, I think it turned quiet Vintagie

When I finished the whole thing somehow a small drop of water got onto my angel WA I was so angry and I could not reprint it again as I used the last little scrap hand made BP paper, so I just had to correct it with my fine line pen.

If you like to see what the rest of DT made hop over to TIOT and see it yourself
