Altered wood frames...and a letter

I am linking up to Transformation Thursday at The Shabby Chic Cottage
Before & After Party at Thrifty Decor Chick

So I am pretty sure everyone knows about the $1 wooden frames from Michaels but I just discovered them. I ventured out from the rock that I live under the other day and had a little fun at Michaels.

This is what they looked like before.
They are 8" frames with a 3.5" x 3.5" spot for the picture.

I used distress ink on this one all around it. No paint at all. The paper is attache using Mod Podge. The little saying in the corner was made using a clear stamp and some white cardstock that I inked up using distress ink.
I colored the edges and the inside of this with a sharpie. :-) I used some black ink around the edges on the paper. I made the little flowers myself.

I inked the tips of the roses and added a bit of glitter glue to them. I painted the back of this one using my free paint sample from Vlaspar. The color is called Rapids.
The paper was decoupaged on and the back and edges were painted with another sample from Valspar :-) I got the flowers from, which is a very bad place, in a very good way :-)

Have a blessed day!
