Altered Frame

I have been busy yesterday altering a frame for my sons girlfriend Emma, She still hasn't seen it yet, hope she likes it, she loves pink.
Well it started out like this, plain and boring 

 Covered the frame with papermainia love hearts scrapbook paper, then mod podge over the top.
 I added a few feathers and some of my hand made flowers that I did using some punched out scallop circles, I punch out 3 using an SU punch, Then put a brad in the centre to join them all together, then I spray each layer with water, get it really wet and scrunch into the middle ,spray the next two layers again scrunching into the middle , then do the same with the bottom layer, then i use a poky tool to gently open each layer, spay with glimmer mists and leave to dry, when dry they stay in the flower shape. 
I have also made the roses using  Penny Duncan's flower SVG files, If you follow my blog you will know that I cant stop making these flowers, you can get Penny`s file from her blog, THANKS PENNY  you know I love them

Then I added some wide pink ribbon tied in a bow then made another bow out of seam binding that I coloured myself, using cosmic shimmer sprays, stuck to the first bow and wrappers it around the tails
Here is the finished frame
I added a photo of the two of them but she can swap it if she likes, just need to do another for other sons girlfriend, then i bet daughter will want one toooo, watch this space
