With all this new Home Décor chalk paint out on the market…
with it’s claims of being able to paint on most anything. I decided to give it a test.

Make sure to burnish the edges of the tape.
I painted the surface of the frame with:
I used 3 coats of paint. Make sure to allow good drying time in between coats.
After allowing plenty of time for the red paint to dry and cure.
I gave the frame an aged look by applying a layer of Tattered Angels Decor and DIY Paint*
I wiped it off with a damp paper towel. Leaving bits of the black streaks.
I stamped around the edges of the frame with a crackle background stamp

Meet Rachael Cunningham Parr.
I found Rachel, a tin type, years ago while hunting for treasures.
If Rachael is your relative, I’m pretty sure she wasn’t really a gypsy.
(She really is a beautiful woman.)
I embellished the frame with some vintage rickrack, key, and a tiny flower.
“R is for Racheal” was made with Metal Type Charms by Tim Holtz*
Once inspired… I created a couple more frames.
Now to try this on a bigger frame!
