Altered Collage Frame

Hey all I am here to day to share with you all my first time scrapping with one of these collage frames.
 I picked up two of these  recently and thought that this would be a perfect project for this month's challenge.  I have used the gorgeous Madame Payraud collection from Papermania.  OMG guys these papers are to die for!!! I have loved working with them and I am really hoping to get a few more projects out of what I have left over.

I gave my collage frame a base coat of white gesso and then a couple of top coats with Antique White Acrylic paint.  Once the paint had dried I went around the edges of the frame with some Tim Holtz Walnut Stain to add that vintage touch.  I grabbed an emery board and in places I sanded the frame back to the bare wood to try and get a bit of an aged effect. 

I have matted the frame with Kaisercraft Coffee Bean it was the perfect shade of brown for this project.  I then added a sheet from the Madame Payraud collection and filled the frames with sepia prints of my family.  I double matted all my little prints on some more of the Kaisercraft Coffee Bean and also a layer of the Bazil Vanilla.  

Once I had all my photos sorted and in their frames, I began adding the embellishments and the monthly challenge quote.  

 I have gone with my usual flower cluster in the top left and corner.  I have used an elcelctic mis of flowers from Leanne and some from my stash along with some chipboard and antique bronze metal filigree leaves.
 I have added a few of the fabulous charms from this month's kit along with a strip of the pink lace.  This really accented the brown and cream so well....prettied it up nicely and added that touch of shabbyness to it

I have added one of the chipboard words that was also in this month's kit.  I have also added some charms, keys, flowers and a few Kraft feathers that were also included in my kit

Well everyone that is my project share for this week.  I thoroughly enjoyed creating this collage frame and the quote from this month's challenge fitted in perfectly.
