Decorated Frame


Does it take you a long time to edit photos from your vacation? We always take lots of them! Once we got prints from our latest trip to San Francisco I thought about framing some.  This is a city we keep going back. We always come home so relaxed and inspired. This last time we made it to the Palace of Fine Arts. A beautiful structure surrounded by magical gardens! I gathered a simple frame and some Faber Castell materials at the studio and ended up with this colorful frame.


Wipe off your frame with a dry cloth to get rid of dust.

Start rubbing Gelatos® Lime on the outer side on the frame.

Using your fingers smudge the Gelatos® Colors Blue to create a smooth and uneven effect.

Let dry about two hours.

Repeat step and rub Gelatos® Pin in the inner side of the frame.

Let dry about two hours.

Start drawing your design using a  superfine PITT Artist Pen. I chose leaves for mine inspired by the Palace of Fine Arts gardens.

Colour your leaves alternating PITT® artist pens: Gold 250**, Indanthrene 247*** and Green Metallic 294***.


Let dry about an hour.

Add some details in the pink inner side of the frame with superfine PITT Artist Pen.

Add a finish to your frame using the Stamper’s Big Brush Pen: Black 199*** and mark all around the outer side of it.

Let dry about an hour.


Choose your favorite photo and hang it! Enjoy!
