Altered Frame / Wall Art

Good morning everyone. I hope you all are enjoying your weekend. 

Today I would like an altered project with you that I made for my Landlords Birthday. She has been so very sweet to us and has become like a second mom to me. I really wish I had taken a before picture of this before I altered it. The frame was a brassy gold color and the center was this really ugly brown with some wording painted on it. I am super happy with the way this turned out and hope that she will like it just as much. 

For the frame I painted it white. After it dried I applied a coat of a champagne gold over it and allowed that to dry. Then I added a white wash  over the top of that. I added a piece of my minds eye paper over the ugly brown center and cut out letters from my cricut. I used mod podge  to adhere the paper and the letters down and hot glued pearl trim around the entire frame and the center frame. All the flowers used in this project came from my dear friend Lineca, with the exception of 4 recollection rose I had in my stash. I removed the centers from the cherry blossoms and added pearls to the center of those and glued a couple of loose pearls here and there. I also adhered a little cherub that I made to the top left hand corner of the frame right above the 3 little roses. 

I hope you all have a fantastic week.
