Altered Swing Frame

Hello friends!
Today I want to share with you this antique swing frame I purchased at an antique shop awhile back just waiting for the  inspiration to alter it.





 
I am having so much fun playing with this paper line!
It's called Circa 1934 and it's by Cosmo Cricket.
This swing frame fits a 5 x 7 photo into the small black photo corners so that the photos can easily be changed instead of glued. Although a 4 x 6 photo would look great in the center!



I found this beautiful velvet flower that matches the paper perfectly! It is by Prima and comes in a set.



Here is a peek of how it would look with a 5 x 7 photo in the frame.
This photo was from a collection of Glamour Shots
 that my Mom and I did for my Sixteenth Birthday.




This swing frame has been added to our etsy shop!

Wishing you a day of crafty fun, Lindsey

Hi Lindsey:

Happy New Year to both of you.

Happy New Year! Thanks for sharing such a beautiful frame! I love the Circa 1934 line as well and recently used it to alter a letterpress tray. Such a great paper line!

Happy New Year!
Warmly,

p.s. the words on the dining room wall were painted by a "professional" that I hired about 5 years ago.
