Upcycled Frame By Lesley

Hi everyone. Lesley here with an upcycled project for you.

This originally started out as an old picture frame! I took the glass out, and gave it a good couple of coats of gesso to prime it.

Oodles of paint was added, until I was happy with the colours.

And I added some touches of crackle glaze.

The dolls head was made out of clay and placed into an old pastry tin and then filled with glaze and glitter.

I mounted it onto three different sizes of the trefoil border shape media boards. Love these!

Between the boards and the dolls head, I sneaked in a art deco and nouveau floral ornament.

Thanks for reading.


Ingredients used
Art Deco & Nouveau floral shape, style 46
Trefoil Border shape mixed media boards


  1. A very effective piece of up-cycling, Lesley. xx

  2. Awesome use of the old picture frame, Lesley!

    And as always you have added the just perfect amount of grunge and dolls head's eeriness to it. ;)
