On the dictionary print I tore out a few pages from an old dictionary (it's 25 years old!). The paper edges are already yellowed from age but after tearing with a ruler I decided to yellow it up some more with my Antique Linen distress ink. Then I went over the edges with my Walnut Stain (love that color!). Applied some MP; allow to dry. Then sand paper the edges and ink with more Walnut Stain. Spray with an acrylic sealer.
On the script frame I painted it first with Americana Buttermilk acrylic paint; allow to dry. Then I painted over that in streaks with Folk Art Cardinal Red acrylic paint (wanted a distress look on that one too); allow to dry. I have several script stamps. Stamped Stazon (black) on my stamp and carefully applied to the from; it took 4 pressings (it's a large stamp). Allow to dry. Apply acrylic sealer.
Oh, and since these frames do not come with a glass piece or plastic piece for the opening, I cut one out from the bubble packs to my cricut carts.
Don't they look great? (but I really want to put embellies on the dictionary print!) All this from a $1 wood frame from Ms! Super cheap to make and comes out great looking.
