tutorial type thing with a frame

Dearest Minions,

This will not be a Blue Peter/Art Attack type of instructions as much of my stopping involved swearing as things dropped off (Bloody KEY.)





Step one- fight chavs for photo frame in the pound shop.

Step two - file with a nail file or sand paper, if more prepared.  Open a window, work alcohol ink into the frame. Put a post it note over the glass.



Step Three - work a darker ink into the corners.
Step Four - Add bits a pieces, stick them down with glossy accents, swear a lot as the key keeps dropping off the frame, try several times and then decide it looks better without.



Step Five- after letting it dry put in a picture and whack it on a side board. TA DA!

ROFL EE You certainly had me laughing tonight, Thanks:0) Gorgeous altered frame, I love the inks on it and the steampunk theme is fab. Love your step by step, I'll have to remember to whack it on the sideboard next time I finish a project but I'll leave fighting the chavs to you, you are our leader after all LOL LOL Gay xxx

Oh Glorious Leader - I love it when a plan comes together! First thing in the morning I will hasten to the pound shop, whack a chav to get the frame and then toddle over to the charity shop across the road and buy a sideboard so that I may complete my project in your honour (and have somewhere suitable to whack it!) Loved the idea Anna xx

Great instructions, Edna - I feel we need more in-depth hints for successfully fighting off the chavs - you are obviously channelling some sort of ninja force or other!! Love the final effect you achieved (even without the key!).
