Up Cycled frame

Good evening, and what a wet day it has been. I'm sure it's not stopped raining....
No wonder I've got a horrific cold and cough I just can't believe it, never felt like this in July before. Oh well it could be worse. So what's been happening, hubby finally got his new car and it's lovely. I managed a couple of hours crafting before the man flu hit me.
I got a really cheap frame from the £1 shop in gold.


A lovely lady called Wendy from a craft shop gave me a tub of the new Dylousions paint to try and I transformed the frame using the paint and graphic 45 papers from the raining cats and dogs collection. What do you think ?



The frame is now in Wendy's shop next to the paints to show you that you can use it on plastic. 
Well I'm sure that's all from me, back to bed I go. Wish I wasn't at work tomorrow  that would surely make me feel better ! 
Well have a wonderful weekend, and thanks to everyone from the bottom of my heart for stopping and leaving comments. It is truly appreciated xxx
