   I found this great foil craft paper at the 99 cents store and decided to make faux rustic tin picture frames.
   First, I traced the cheap frame and cut it out of the foil.

   Then, I put the foil on a stack of papers and used the end of a paintbrush to press the designs into it

   When i was done, I just glued it onto the frame. Very easy. If you're wondering about the different colors, it's because the foil had a silver side and a copper side, and I liked the copper side better.

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
