Boring old plain brown frames . . .
Painted them my fav color of beachy blue.
Then distressed them.
And usually I just sell them like this. Which is fine, and they ALWAYS sell quickly. But I’m readying product for a special trunk show at a friend’s shop and I wanted something NEW and exciting to offer.
I was trying to think of something that could be hung in the center of the frame. Oh! OH !!! OH!! I have a few BIG shells that I got at a rummage sale a while back! I wonder if they’d fit?!?!?
TA ~ DAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
To say that I LOVE how these turned out (especially THIS one with the starfish, my ONLY starfish!) is a total understatement. This is in the ‘top ten’ of my most favorite things I’ve ever created. Maybe even at the TOP of the top ten!
I just used some e6000 adhesive to attach the shell to the frame.
I have a few more of thee scallop shells, but that starfish was my ‘one and only’. I’m hunting for more, if anyone has a good source for buying them they’d care to share with me. I’ve been searching the net for weeks for starfish. I want some BIG ones to frame and some little ones to add to my little ‘candy’ boxes of shells and sea glass.
I’m on the hunt for some more frames like this too; thick sided with small openings.
Definitely at the TOP of my top ten favs!
