Dry Brushed Altered Wooden Frame

Hey gang,

Anat with you today sharing another wonderful Step by Step.  I’d like to share my Altered wooden Frame made using gorgeous Lindy’s Sprays and Powders.  Let me show you it’s possible to create amazing projects with only a few products, so join me and find out how to create this stunning piece!

Gather your supplies.

Let the fun begin:

First, paint the frame with black gesso. Make sure that everything is well covered.

Dry brush the frame with Heavy white gesso, in case your’e not familiar with this technique here’s the how to dry brush: Pick a stiff hair brush, keep it dry, take a small amount of heavy gesso and dab it on your work mat, until there’s hardly any gesso on the brush. Brush your object with smooth and light movements. Repeat it until your’e satisfied.

Covered a fabric strip and metal elements with Black gesso.

Dry brushed fabric stripe and metal elements with white gesso.

Spray frame and elements with Opal Sea Oats and Rudolph’s Nose Red shimmer sprays. I also glued together round metal and butterfly embellishments and sprayed the butterfly only with the red spray the flower with Opal Sea Oats.

Look how amazing that is.

Can you see this gorgeous shimmer?!

Build the center by adhering all elements together with Heavy body gel. Let it dry for a few hours.

While the Frame is drying, emboss the chipboard frame with Cuckoo Clock Cardinal EP and then just a little bit of Midnight Gold EP on top.

Color paper flowers and leaves, which I stamped with Black Archival Ink, with Opal Sea Oat and Rudolph’s Nose Red shimmer sprays.

When finally dry, add little metal Believe tag and hanging pedant, then a few splashes of Sidewalk Chalk Flat Fabio Spray.

Can’t do without Glitter! Add Gold fine Glitter and Red large Glitter, both with Soft Gloss Gel to the frame, the flowers and leaves – well everything!.


And viola the frame is ready!
