I painted with Gesso first, dried and then painted with a card in sage and turquoise acrylic paint.
Then I distressed around the edges of my picture and blended the edges with vintage photo distress stain. Sprayed water on it rubbed off with paper towel and then did the edges again.. (like France taught us to do.) I got out my sewing machine and sewed around it in black.
Blended with a blending tool with black ink around all the edges and then the vintage photo distress stain.
Well I hope you liked my first ever photo tutorial and that you pop over and celebrate with France for her 100th.. France also has taken a heap of time and popped all her tutorials in picture form all in one spot on a separate Journal on Monday page so it is easy to look and find all her wonderful past videos and get inspired all over again.
Have a great day
