Just add some paint - picture frame

About a month ago I was at Ross trying to find some good buys and I came across this picture frame with a great price tag - so I snatched it up.



Since then, it's been sitting in my garage . . . until today. There wasn't anything really wrong with it, but it did have a small chip on the front. I sanded it down to make it smooth and then decided to give it a little face lift (you can see the sanded part on the left side of the frame). Here's what I started with:



The orange color is called Burnt Orange. I first painted the frame black with my craft paint.



After it had dried, I then added a bit of the Burnt Orange color and wiped it off with a paper towel and ended up with this.



I thought about putting in a cute fall or Halloween photo but didn't have any on hand so I decided to create my own "picture" with one of my Stampin' Up stamp sets.

I stamped the fence and pumpkins on some white card stock, did a little water coloring and added a cute little crow I found a Michael's.

Now it's complete. I love how the frame turned out with the orange highlights.



Here's a close up of my art work.



I decided to put it up on my kitchen cupboards for now.



On Thursday, Melissa over at 320 Sycamore is having a Under $10 and Under an Hour party. I think I'll be linking up this project.
