This is just a standard frame I got at the charity shop for 50p. I took the back out and re-cycled the glass. Then I set it on my craft may. I have given in and got one of these non-stick craft mats - and it's so much better. Mine is from Woodware - so much cheaper that the Ranger one - but it's exactly the same stuff. (I have them in the shop HERE).
It is quite a fine frame with a pretty detail round the edge.
I got out the Viva Vintage Chalk Paint - I must say - I do like the paint in a pot so you have somewhere to rest the sponge/brush. I used the sponge to gently pat the paint over the frame as I wanted to create a surface texture. I gave it 2 coats in the end as the gold underneath was showing through as a bit green and I wanted a cleaner look. Then I dabbed over a quick coat of glitter varnish - thie is going to take a bit of wear and I wanted to preserve the paint.
The fabric was a bit creased - so I used my hair straighteners to 'iron' it out a bit - really quick useful tip that!
I used spray adhesive to stick a thick layer of padding to the frame back - then I sprayed a light coat over the top and adhered the fabric. I did leave a good 2" over the back size so I could wrap the fabric round the frame and secure with double sided tape - just to keep tight.
It is really pretty - and the crystal catches the light and is all sparkly.
