Prima's Altered Metal Telephone Frame

Prima's Altered Metal Telephone Frame (Blitsy Video Exclusive)

Blitsy is featuring Prima Metal Frames so this is a perfect time to share my recent project and video link.  

I recently grabbed the Prima Metal Telephone Frame by Finnabair.  I love whole range of  metal frames from Prima; the bicycle, house, clock, television and all the rest now being featured at Blitsy. They look great no matter which decorative style you choose as you add your special embellishments.  

I took a festive vintage approach.  I call it festive because I used a photo from my childhood and accented with bright happy colors that reflect the moment the photo was taken.   

Watch my short video at Blitsy.  See how I gave this magnificent metal frame my decorative touch.  

Special Tip

Jennifer used an old black and white photo, but any photo will work. Change the feel of your piece by adding different colored flowers and trims and different colored mists.

Close Ups

You can see how the mist adds a little bit of sheen and interest to the piece. The drips of blue mist add vintage patina appeal


Additional embellishment ideas

Are you thinking of creating this for someone and don't want to add a lot of flowers? Maybe you want to make it more masculine? Why not consider these embellishment options:
Burlap or trim
Metal charms, metal vintage trinkets.,chains
Cork embellishments/stickers
Stamp on the metal using StayzOn Solvent ink or other alcohol based inks
Chipboard or wood icons
Old clock pieces
Happy Crafting!
