Masculine Picture Frame for CropStop

Hello, everyone! Today I am going to show you how I made this really cool masculine picture frame using fun products from the CropStop Shop.  I started with a simple wooden frame and turned it into this:

The first thing I did was paint the wooden frame with yellow acrylic paint that I mixed some Distress Spray in Fossilized Amber in with it.

Once the paint was dry I then stamped the frame with Prima Art Basics Soft Matte Gel and the Heartfelt Creations Cogs and Gears Stamp Set. Before the gel dried I quickly added Cosmic Shimmer Gemstone Gilding Flakes.  These flakes are so cool and can be used so many different ways.
After making sure the stamped gel areas were good and covered I used a dry paint brush to gently brush away the excess flakes.

To finish off the frame I added some metal gears from idea-ology and then added more Prima Texture Paste in Copper Crackle and Cosmic Shimmer Gemstone Gilding Flakes to the gears. Sprayed some of the Distress Spray in Fossilized Amber randomly in spots and added a chipboard title that I sprayed and the crackle paste to. Added some Black Burlap String to the outside edges of the frame, attached a picture of my handsome dad in high school and that's it. A super cool masculine frame for that special guy!

Thank you for looking and I hope I inspired you to give it a try! Be sure to check out the CropStop Shop to find all the supplies to create this project and so much more!
