Altered Frame from Scratch *GIFTED*

The Original Photo frame As it was......
 A scroll made out of handmade paper - distressed with a distressing tool and a touch of flame to achieve the charred old look, and of course I will use old style writing to suit!
The working out stage and maybe a change of colour...
Here I have used Gesso for texture with stencils...A dark Blue Acrylic Paint base followed with a lighter blue and a finish with my favourite green shimmer paint... 

Ceramic, Metal and paper flowers with both round and flatback pearls used as fillers. Mulberry paper leaves painted with acrylic and finished with gold shimmer spray. Mussel Shell Coin beads help create depth and a rose gold enamel  white rhinestone flower adds some bling!
I have made a second scroll again with methods mentioned above and added a couple of flowers to balance the floral theme.... I have left more of the stencil leaves showing on this side to emphasise the texture...
With the addition of a couple of Dragonflies, Cats and a blingy peacock  this is The finished Product!!
All ready to be gifted to a special friend tomorrow.....
