Wilson Designs: March 2012 Release Project Introducing Snap Happy!

Welcome to the last day for the Wilson Designs March release.  I am here today to share my altered project with you!
I took an unfinished wood frame at Michael's for $1.00! To get started, I sanded and painted a base coat of antique white. After that dried, I added a layer of chocolate brown paint. As you can see I painted another layer of antique white, and sanded and distressed the frame down to some of the brown to give it an aged look.
It was super fun to stamp the various camera images and fussy cut them out to decorate the frame. I love having making something to showcase the picture of my beloved grandmother in her bathing beauty years. The film strip is so cute.  I cut and applied in a wavy pattern to the frame on a diagonal. I stamped and cut the photo corners which fit the corners perfectly. For a dressy touch,  I cut a few felt flowers sewing a button to the center.

Now it's time to introduce to you Snap Happy!!!
