Burst of Color

Good morning, everyone.  I missed my day of blogging so I'm doing it on Friday which is my favorite day of the week.  It's the end of the work week and the next 2 days are mine to fill.  Hurray!!!! I'm like everyone else with a lot of projects to get done by Christmas.  Tis the time to be jolly!.  Anyways, here is my explanation of  my little project.  Picked up these two cute and frilly frames of a boy and girl.  Loved the frames but I wanted some more color.  Here is the before picture. Please excuse the highlight in the frame.

 I really wanted to highlight the frames more than anything and I really like gold and aqua.  So, I got out my aqua paint, straight from the can and painted the whole frame.  When the paint was still wet I began to wipe the excess paint off.  I kept on wiping with clean rags, some rags wet and some dry, until I got my desired result.  Than I put poly-acrylic varnish on the frames to protect them.  Here are the after results:
 So what do you think?  I think better.  Until next time, Dianne......
