Seattle Upcycled Frame

I finally did something with the photos from the trip hubby and I took to Seattle last summer.  I was digging through my stash of papers when I came across my older Amy Tangerine papers by American Crafts.  I love the map paper and knew that the blue was close to the blue in the photos so I went to work.  I had the itch for an upcycled project so I dug through my stash of garage sale frames and found this one.  I painted it to pull out the blue in the paper, added some twine then made my hanging tags.  I used one sheet of paper and just embellished with some Remarks stickers and some Ormolu goodies.  I picked up the clothespins at a Dollar Store.  It went together very quickly and I love how it turned out.  Not bad for an inexpensive home decor piece!
