Altered Challenge by Imaginisce

Hey everyone--Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I know I did.  I was able to relax and read.  I am reading a great book right now called Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks.  I love his books and this one is outstanding.  Plus I had to clean the house and just do odd n ends stuff.  I can never get all the stuff done when I get absorbed in my scrap room so the scrap room AND the computer were pretty much off limits. 

Imaginisce's monthly challenge was to alter something using their products.  Well I am not one to alter things all the time so this was a little difficult for me.  I bought these frames at Michael's ages ago. I had the intention to alter them but I just never got around to it. 

The Dino Roar paper was perfect for my project.  I plan on making over Michael's bedroom with a dinosaur theme.  Michael LOVES dinos so this was perfect to put this picture frame in his bedroom.

First, I painted the  edges of the wooden frame with brown paint, and then i cut the paper to the size of the frame.  I adhered the paper and then I needed to jazz it up a bit.

Here you can see two of the stamps I used.  It was a snag em stamp that I stamped and colored with copic markers. Once the markers dried I attached them and added a layer of glossy accents to give them that epoxy look.
At the bottom of the frame I attached part of their border strip.  I liked  the volcano and the other dinos. 

supplies:
paint
glossy accents
frame
imaginisce dino roar

I hope everyone has a fantastic day today.  I am hoping we have a normal week of weather. I am so tired of the snow and the snow days.  I need to get back in the grove again.   plus the more days we are off the longer we have to go in June and boy oh boy I do not want to go to school in the middle of June.

I will be back tomorrow with a new layout.  Thanks for stopping by!
