TN Four + One

I couldn't resist altering this! I bought the frame at TJ Max that had an one inch border around the actual picture. Cuttle bugged some black cardstock, rub & buff the whole piece of cardstock and then using little pom poms, painted the bird & vine with rub & buff. Cut into one inch tiles, edged with gold Krylon, using antique rub & buff around the wooden frame to tie all the colors together. Upon Roxi mentioning that TJ Max had some metal letters on their selves....I chanced it & our TJ Max DID have some.
So hence the metal letters & number that are adhered to the picture glass using foam tape for added dimension. My fingerprints removed from the glass & picture inserted and TA DA.......here are OFFICIALLY the Tennessee FOUR + ONE (Claudine Hellmuth).

Great pic and beautiful frame. I had the opportunity to take classes from Claudine maybe three or four years ago in Atlanta. That may have been my first time to do wax collage..anyway..she's a great teacher and ya'll sure look like you're having a good time!

The frame is great. Oh what you can do with a bargin. You just added another way to use the cuttlebug. The piture just adds to the greatness of the frame.
