Great frame find and a WIP...

When I spied this little gold frame in the thrift store, I kept telling myself not to buy another frame! Then I rationalized that it was #1..wood...#2 in great shape...#3 a great price! So I caved...little did I know that the miniature that I did a couple of weeks ago and put in a black leather mat so it could be floated, was perfect for this frame. At least it was after I added the little black grosgrain ribbon border. To me it looks as if they were made for each other!

Now my next dilema, is how to finish this WIP ( work in progress) of a rooster...

I am totally open to suggestions; I considered suggesting a farm scene behind. I tried a couple of other things by laying mylar/acetate over the painting and painting around it. Glad I did, because I didn't like what I added so I was able to just wipe the plastic and was back to square one!

I look forward to your feedback and ideas........ thanks, Ruth Ann

You sound like me. I can't go into a Goodwill store without hearing the siren voice of numerous frames. I've got so many frames now I don't know what to do with them. I guess I should paint more pictures. :)
