I have had this black and white picture of these three grumpy bitches for years and I finally did something with it. I hand-tinted the picture, giving them smeared liptstick and color in their hats with watered down acrylic paint. I made a 2 dimensional picture frame by adhering the image to the inside of a lid from a naked wooden box. I glued the lid to the $1 store frame which I embellished with a scrap of grey velvet fabric on the backing and some painting and decoupage (scrap giftwrap) and some antiquing gel on the frame.  This was a very cheap project done with all scraps that I had around!  The plastic flowers were also a $1store item from CVS, I think. I glued little pearl beads into the insides of them.
I call it "Vanity Fair" b/c the term is defined as "A place or scene of ostentation or empty, idle amusement and frivolity" which these women so remind me of... Roll Eyes
Hope you likey... Smiley

I like it too firehead! I especially like the added dimension to the frame. Don't feel bad, people don't respond to some of my things either.... win some, lose some, I suppose.  Grin

Is it me or do your grumpy bitches look like men?  Somehow that makes it even better for me!
