Rooster painting & {painting a cheap picture frame}

You may recall back some time ago my blogging friend Laurie painted me two lovely rooster's. Laurie is a very talented lady who continues to lose her eye sight due to an injury years ago.

I am very thankful to have received these works of art from her and will always cherish them.
This was the first one I framed.  I bought a cheapo frame from Walmart for 3.00 and gave it a few coats of ASCP and then heavily distressed it.
Yesterday, I ran out and picked up another frame and did the same thing.

Nice I found a few sample left and decided I best use them up.

Made a cute little Fall vignette, and now I can enjoy my second works of art from Laurie.
 {flash on}
{I waxed the the inside border as well}

Bag of small pumpkins bought at Walmart for $2.98.  I probably will have fun with those around Thanksgiving changing them up.

Nice job on the frames. I have seen the first rooster print in Laurie's Etsy shop. I should probably just go ahead and buy it. I know yours is the original but a print would be fine for me. I follow Laurie too. What a wonderful person. Happy Sunday Debbie!

I love that new rooster painting. So cute with them looking at each other. So sad about someone so gifted losing her sight.

Loving those roosters! The frames and the pumpkins tie the vignette together nicely. I'll look forward to seeing how you change things around for Thanksgiving too.

This was the aboriginal one I framed. I bought a bargain anatomy from Walmart for 3.00 and gave it a few coats of ASCP and again heavily afflicted it.
