I altered this picture frame using scrap materials I had on hand. My "scratch technique" for the glass was literally that; I removed the glass from the frame, placed it on my garage floor, then used a "Cinderella floor scrubbing" motion to create the effect. *CAUTION! DO NOT USE THISTECHNIQUE WITH TEMPERED GLASS; IT WILL EXPLODE INTO LITTLE PIECES.* I rubbed in a small amount of gesso onto the surface, and wiped the excess off. Gesso is one of my favorite go-to materials; I custom make my own opaque paint colors by mixing it with chalk pastel powder. The linen scrap bow was dyed using a technique I created on the fly. Read my post from the past if you'd like to try it yourself. The sweet little book pages are from a 1929 edition of Bambi that was discarded at the library. A few torn pieces are used to embellish the egg.
This spring time assemblage will find a place among my other decorative musings. It makes me smile.
