Pinque Peacock Design Team Altered Frame

Hi Everyone! All I have to say is TGIF!!  I have an altered frame to share with you today and a story. So I completely forgot that I had to have my post for today. For some reason I thought it was next Friday that I was going to share with you. So at 11 pm last night I had to make something up.  I had no idea what to do. Well I have been trying to go through old projects that I loved at the time but now not so much, and revamping them into something else. So I dug into my stash and pulled out the frame.  So here is the AFTER...

 I found a before and it was one of the first things I ever made on my blog so I think I have come a long way since then.

It was a black frame I had painted and glittered, but I didn't do a great job on it. So I took pink paint and painted over the black. Then I took a piece of paper towel and rubbed the pink off. So it gave it the muted distressed look, but you could still see the black and sparkles.  Then I used some bling in the 2 corners to jazz it up. The pin is from the Pinque Peacock Bead Buffet. I'll explain that shortly. Then I grabbed some flowers and I sandwiched the pin between the 2 layers of flowers. The paper is from Crafting Family and it is called Girlfriend Phrases by TPC Studios Added some ribbon and I have a new and CUTE picture frame.OOH, and I glittered the top of the pin :)

So the Pinque Peacock Bead Buffet is really cool. On the Pinque Peacock Facebok there is a photo album called the Bead Buffet. Here is the link.It is being restocked today, but what you do is you pick the beads you want and then you can actually make the pins yourself, or you can use the bead buffet to order custom pins. If making pins isn't your thing. :)  So go check it out and I hope you have enjoyed the frame.

I hope you like my frame redo and enjoy your Friday.
