This one I put light coat of a shimmery gold paint as well. I couldn't get it to show in any pictures. It gives the frame an almost iridescent sheen. The shimmery gold paint was on clearance at Michael's. I might have to see if there is still some there and pick up another can. I think it was $1.50 a can. It is a smaller can but well worth that price. I even used some of it on some of the paper I used.
On the lighter side, today was Kira's 13th birthday. I think I was able to surprise her with the cake I ordered. Coborn's did a fabulous job. I asked for a picture of the Click books Kira loves and mentioned that she really liked the background from some of the books. They printed off a picture of most of the books and put it on the cake and filled in the rest of the background and sides of the cake with the background scroll work. It was nice to see a genuine smile on Kira's face.
Well the frame was the only creative project I completed today, well so far today. This week I have been most creative late at night. I need to put away the remenants of supplies I used on the frame and that will probably lead to some more late night crafting today.
