Oriental Box Frame Picture



Have done this for the weekly challenge on the Lots to Do Challenge blog, the theme being "oriental".

The frame is made from 4 Jenga type wooden blocks, glued together painted with acrylic then "antiqued with rub-on wax in gold.Hand made paper on the back, a "screen" of patterned vellum then the decoupaged lady. Satin ribbon around the outside completes the piece.



The frame is a bit rustic looking but that makes it look older which I quite like!
