Up-cycling a Frame for a Art Ornament Display Piece for a Christmas Tour

I am hosting my first OPEN HOUSE this Dec. It is part of "Intimate Christmas Tour" a group of woman owned businesses and artist are hosting. I am nervous & excited all at the same time. I will be showing new mixed media pieces, art ornaments,note cards and other assorted items on my to do list.

Part of planning is a preparing postcards and marking material. I have an entire list-actually several lists- I have started and in the middle of it is marketing the tour and open house. So jumping to the top is my marketing. Translation, take photos. Well, I am not that far ahead of the game to be decorated for Christmas, that would just be plain annoying. But I have bought some new lights and prepping this frame for a photo shoot of my mixed media ornaments displayed in this frame.
My work is often done in a bright, bold  color pallet. Some folks might say my personality has its colorful side as well. I went with this key-lime green to give a pop with the more traditional colors and my home. Should go well with the ornaments and mini uplifting quotes.


Started with giving this frame a fresh base coat of white paint.


 Then careful layers of key-lime.


It's coming along!

Stop back to see future posts on my finished display and other projects and art for the open house.
