"La Vie Est Belle" Altered Frame

This Prima frame is probably my most favorite Prima product ever. I LOVE the look of it! I used a few things from a past Swirlydoos kit. 

I started out by giving the entire frame a coat of blur Glimmer Glam, and then some silver and patina paints just to give it some sparkle. 

I used paper from the Authentique Classique: Elegant paper line. The alphas are also from that line. 

This closeup shows the chandelier that I picked up from Michaels in the jewelry section. The black lace is from JoAnn, and I got it a long time ago. 

I outlined the inside with black tulle that I twisted. On the outside I used tiny rhinestone chain from Michaels. The larger chain with pearls was from a special add on kit from Swirlydoos. And the staircase is a Prima resin piece.

I added A LOT of flowers in black, grey, and blues to bring all the colors of the project together. 

I also added a Prima oval frame that I colored with black chalk ink for the background of the photo. The jeweled swirl is also Prima. 

Thanks for looking!

Oh my! This is super gorgeous. I just had to come take a closer look. Love the patina you created for the frame, and that chandelier is a stroke of genious. So well put together and simply a piece to treasure.
By the way, that frame is one of my all time favourites as well :-)
