Here's my new family frame.
Here's what it looked like when I picked it up at Goodwill (on half price Wed., the 3rd Wed of every month, at least in my area). So I snagged this piece for $2.50.
It reminded me of all those Tim Holtz trays that I see floating around on blogs.
So I spray painted it black. Spray paint/paint always makes something feel new to me.
I used a lot of For the Record collection by Echo Park and mixed it with scraps I already had.
I found these clips by Tim Holtz at Hobby Lobby. So I can change out the photos. I just used Super Glue to glue them in place. In fact, the super small photos are Instagrams.
I found this cute bottle filled with trinkets and sand that says LOVE on the front at Canton. I glued it in place.
I added our establishment date (our wedding date).
And Sophia's birth date (since she's an addition to our family and has forever changed our lives).
Then I added the pinwheels just to add some depth, interest and layers. I tried making many fabric flowers and I just didn't like the way it looked.
So that's it! My Tim Holtz knock off.
