Little Miss Emilie in Distress - Recycled Picture Frame

**Note this is one of my DT creations for this weeks challenge #8 DISTREE over at Gingerloft Challenges. *** I have made 2 separate posts for my creations as they both fall into enteries for some challenge blogs.  If you would like to read my DT post please click here.  

This is my Christmas gift I made for my dearest sister, Aunty Ree.  The frame is recycled from an old photo frame that the glass broke in.  It was an ugly colour blue so I painted it with purple, gave it a coat of crackle finish and then went over the top in white to give the beautiful crackled, distressed finish.

I used a staple gun to adhere the chicken wire mess to the back of the frame, added some paper flowers and the butterfly that I handmade and distressed, along with the sentiment.  I added some scrap lace around the border and tied a string of beads on fishing line to make the pearl swirl.  The image is Gingerloft Fairy with wand that I have embossed several times with clear emboss powder and then when dry I twisted it to give a shattered glass look to to keep the distress look flowing.  And I added the gorgeous purple bow to finish the piece.
