WELL....wait no longer, it is available now in my store HERE!

Today's project is a decorative frame that I made.
I've been wanting to alter a frame like this since Emma released the Stitched Hexy Dies a couple months ago. Originally  I was going to cover the entire frame with hex's, but I liked the look of just the partial cover, leaving a bit of the paint to show. I love how the smaller die looks with this frame, but I think next time I will use the medium one.... that was a ton of tiny hex's to cut out and ink. ;)
I painted the frame with one coat of black paint. Once it dried, I sanded it a bit to give it a worn/beat-up look. When all of my hex's were cut and inked, I started applying them with Mod Podge. I just slowly and randomly placed them. They are not placed on the frame perfectly straight, but that's ok... I really like how it turned out.
