Birthday Boy Frame

This cute little frame I made for my co-worker to put her grandson's 1st birthday picture in. I purchased the $1 frames at Michael's Arts and crafts. I love these frames. They are perfect for altering!  First I painted the frame with FolkArt acrylic paint in Country Twill. The patterned paper is from the DCWV "Linen Closet" stack. Then I inked the egdes of the frame with TH Vintage photo ink. I used the Birthday Baby Boy file from Treasure Box Designs. Instead of adding both boys in the file I only used the one sitting down. He also is holding a candle so I omitted it and used the number 1 from my fonts instead. Everything is accented with a white gel pen. This file was perfect for the occasion.
