A Gorjuss little bit of upcycling !!!

Hi all
Here is a project I made a while ago and thought you may like to try for yourself ...I bought this black plastic frame from a local Home bargain store for 79p ...yes 79p and I got to thinking it would look so much more exciting if I added some pretty flowers and empire gold wax .I love how it turned out .I used my Tim Holtz tattered floral die. to make the flowers which I embossed with a dotty embossing folder. I then added gold pebeoempire gold  wax over the top to bring out the embossed texture I added a simple black pearl to the centre .The added leaves are made using sue Wilson leaf dies. The frame was then waxed in the corners using the same  wax .I added a gorjuss girl image just to finish it but you could easily add a fave cute is that for 79p......
