I'm putting this under miscellaneous because of the frame.  had I just put it in a plain frame, I'd have gone with "needlework".  Wink

I was inspired to make the frame when I saw this link on Pinterest (I plan on making that too just to hang on my wall, but I need to wait for Halloween costumes to be in stores...which should be any day now).



I found this cute little Ariel pattern (via Beads&Stitch) and decided to make it. Of course the base is mint tissue paper mod podged onto a frame (that was brown so I had to paint it white), then I coated it in two layers of crystal glitter paint and one coat of aqua glitter mixed with mod podge. Then I spread more mod podge on the corner, covered it in gold glitter (that got EVERYWHERE and I will be finding it months from now), and added some seashells, beach glass, and faux pearls. I'm going to hang it on my wall. That's why I added stuff to the bottom of the frame.

it's 2.5in X 3.5in on 18 count Aida.

hope you like!

Beautiful job!  I dig that minimalist cross-stitched interpretation of Ariel and the glittery shell corner of the frame looks awesome.

thanks all!!!  ♥

and Patraw, that is exactly why I wanted to do this pattern.  I fell in love with the minimalist style the second I saw it.  I plan on doing a couple of others the creator posted on their page too.  one is from Frozen, so I'm thinking of doing something similar for the frame.

I love the way you interpreted the idea from the trident into a frame.  Really clever!  And pretty, too!
