Altered photo frame

Hi everyone!
Bought this photo frame in Dunnes and thought I could do something with it.  Painted the frame from silver to blue and distressed the edges etc   Added my own crochet and embroidered Snippets to create an undersea scene:
Ok..  its not exactly an aquarium but I used the Tim Holtz Twigs border (for seaweed) and Doodlebug designs dotty paper for the banner. The background is from Papermania capsule collection - Aqua. Then comes the major scrounge the -driftwood and sea glass come from OH's collections!  That driftwood might have come from the Titanic, you know!Lol!!  The fish are my own Snippets and the net and twirly edgings are my crochet.  The shells are the usual beach finds that everyone has!
Hope you enjoy looking at this fun  frame.  I had lots of fun making it.
