Photo Plaques

Hi Everyone

Well today I have been working on some wooden plaques I actually bought from B&M and re purposed them.

The signs were already made with some quotes on but I wanted some photo plaques with words.  I started by painting over the original ones with some gesso and and then white acrylic paint.  I then decided on what colours I want and dry brushed some on the top of the white.

I choose some wooden words I had in my stash and used the same background paint.

I cut out some insta frames on my cameo and used a bow die from @alinacrafts on Ali Express from different papers I did used the new gingham papers from @stampinup! 
I hot glued the pegs on then added the frames and the words.

I added some new ribbons so they could be with hung from a door or even a picture hook.

I thought it would be fun to add some of your photos and also know that they can be changed when ever you wanted to as the frames are only attached with the peg.

Think I will be searching all the charity shops now for any wooden signs to change.

Anyway thanks as always for looking.
