I altered an mdf frame as a gift for my sister's upcoming birthday. She's not a girly girl, so I went for a grungy theme with just a few feminine touches. The background was created with torn bits of pattern paper that I then white washed with gesso. I splattered some paint, inked the edges and random spots,stenciled with modeling paste, stamped in areas...definitely got messy with this one,lol! The chipboard gears were made to look rusty and grimy using some puffy paint, embossing powders and inks. Had a lot of fun with this one and I really hope she likes it!
