What better way to get in the grove of things with a little Mojo Monday challenge #282.  Here's my take on the sketch.
Recipe Ingredients:
Martha Stewart edge punch
Crafting With Jack digital image
Spectrum Noir Markers CG1, DG2, DG4, LV1, LV2
Sizzlets flourish die
Also entering this one in 613 Avenue Create for their Tic Tac Toe challenge.
I used Purple stickles for the grapes, a digital image, and the color green.

Afrocentric Frame Swap

We had an Afrocentric Frame Swap over at Scraps Of Color hosted by sweet Mary J of Afrocentric Creations.  She partnered us together and we had to make a frame based on our partners wishes.  My partner, who was Tory White asked me to go with the flow so I did.  Whenever I make something for someone else I love to put my heart into it.  She replied, "I love, love, love, my frame Princess!!! Very Harlem Renaissance!"  So my heart was pleased with the outcome!
Recipe Ingredients:
Michael's frame
Prima container
Hampton Art Graphic 45 stamp set
Adirondack Metallics Acrylic Paint dabber
Magic Scraps micro beads
Prima, American Crafts, Hobby Lobby flowers
Stazon ink pad
Websters tulle & ribbon lace
Hancock fabrics laced robe
Recollections bling, flowers

I added other views so you can see the details.  My favorite addition was the mini Prima container.  I recycled after I used the mini flowers that was in it. Sort of glad I kept it instead of discarding it.  I distressed the front, added  micro beads and European tiles inside oh and added the word DREAMS.

Love this cloth I got on sale at Hancock's Fabric.  I used the laced robe on the fabric and the button.
The Websters tulle made it a little feminine I thought with the various flowers and pearls around the Prima container.
After I let the acrylic paint dry, I stamped the set of images with Stazon ink in various places of the frame to make my own design. 
Yes that's a Sizzix music die cut and a word from a sticker I just couldn't throw away with some bling from something else I didn't use.  The lace and fiber was the perfect touch for the bottom.
Hope you enjoyed the views.  Would love to know your thoughts of this project!  It all started with a $1 frame from Michaels.
