Altered Picture Frame, Mothers Day

Mothers Day is April 3rd this year and as I live 300 miles away from my Mum, I like to make something special for her.

The frame was a plain wooden one from Ikea, which I roughly covered with torn printed sheet music. I then added Tim Holtz clear crackle.
The flowers are made from the Sizzix 3D flower die and coloured with Tim Holtz Dusty Concord.
The butteflies along the top left are a Martha Stewart Punch, the dangly is an old earring to which I added an irridescent gem and the heart I made using Resin and a chocolate mould from Poundland.
The Mum label is cut using Nestabilities labels 10 and again coloured with Tim Holtz Dusty concord. The letters I'm not sure about, they were from my stash and bright pink! I coloured them black using permenant marker.

I've got a nice summery photo of Me and my Mum together to go into the frame.
