Pressie for Tanmo

Hi all,just sneaking in quickly with a present i made for my buddy Tanmo who had a birthday the other day. Sadly she lost her beloved Nodmo recently so thought i would make something for her to keep to remind her of him. So this is how it started out before i attacked it!
basic wooden frame

Finished frame


So i sanded frame down,added acrylic paint for the base coat and then gesso and glitter for added sparkle. Used multi-medium and a old music book which i aged the papers using distress inks and applied to the individual frames and then edged with distress ink. Used photos of Nodmo and then coloured cardboard letters to match. I also made a box for it to be contained in so Tanmo couldn't peep.......lol
box for frame


Anyway thats all for now, as need to get tea organised.Have a good evening all,x
