Father's Day Project

I just wanted to share a little project I did with my boys for Father's Day.  I got a plain wood frame from Michael's and painted it in white, cream and a little gold.  I had my boys draw some pictures on copy paper, which we then traced onto tissue paper with a fine pigment pen.  I carefully cut around each drawing,  and used it as a guide to put down some color on the frame, the using gel medium, glued each drawing onto the colored area.  The fine lines are perfectly clear, and the tissue paper disappears.  We then added a little more color, distressing the edges of the frame with more gold paint and there we have it, a photo frame for Dad with drawings from the kids.

Have a great weekend and Happy Father's Day!
