i made this frame in memory of my niece who passed away, i put images of her favorite things (butterfly, frida kahlo & day of the dead) and favorite colors (black & red). the techniques i used were reverse glass painting, glass fusing, altered dominoes, decoupage, and crackle painting.

(sorry i could not rotate this image)

close up of top half of frame (hand painted butterfly using reverse painting on the glass) and made an altered domino with her name on it.

It's like a retablo and I think Freida would have been very pleased with this, she loved butterflies too.
