Gorgeous mixed media frame

This weekend, I took a fabulous class at Altered Angel in Alpharetta, GA. The class was taught by my super-talented friend Jeremy Bright from Vertigo Graphic. This picture frame is ridiculously gorgeous!

This started as a plain wooden picture frame, but with the help of Quick Quotes Powder Puff Chalking Ink and Martha Stewart craft paint, it soon became a distressed beauty. Can you believe we got this look with no messy wood stain?

The silver flakes are Stampendous Mica Fragments. They are like big glitter, but more vintage-y looking and much less messy. I love the mercury glass look that it gives to the project. We applied it by layering the mica with good old Mod Podge.

I absolutely love this frame and I am so glad I had the opportunity to take this class. For more awesome mixed media crafts from Jeremy Bright and Ken Oliver, please check out Vertigo Graphic.
