I picked up some 8x10 photo mats on clearance for $1. They were red, with a white stripe around the inside - it was no wonder they were on clearance! I've been wanting to try my hand at Altered Art, and this is what I came up with. It was quite an adventure. The flower in the upper left and the 3 petals along the right are made out of puffy paint - painted onto a fabric scrap, puffed and then painted with acrylics before being cut out and glued to the frame. This was a blast to make and I can't wait to start the next one!
