Well, Heather Wright-Porto posted some projects using the Baroque Motifs stamp set from Stampin' Up, which just happens to be the ONLY SU stamp set that I own. And when I saw her frame project, I knew that was a project that I had to case.
One of my co-workers lost her mother last week and the memorial service will be tomorrow. I thought that the frame might be a lovely way for the family to preserve a copy of the memorial (with photo of her mom). So......... here is my take on Heather's frame project.
I first white-washed the wooden frame with some thinned-out white acrylic paint, then lightly stamped on different Tim Holtz' Distress Inks to mute the white color further. A combination of both ColorBox and Distress Inks were used along with a couple of background stamps.
Many thanks to Heather for a wonderful project. I'm hoping that my co-worker will like it.

Thanks for looking.
