Cute Frame for Sister!

Remember the stash of frames I got a little while ago?! 
Well, I made a frame for sister, because she left yesteday to go back to school for her 5th year. :(  I usually make her or get her a little something, so I decided to make her something this year! I started off with the frame and these little nautical pieces. (she loves everything nautical)
 I didn't take many pictures of the process, but I taped off the frame in stripes and painted it white.
I then painted the pieces. First I had them a gold yellow colour, then gold, then silver, then finally decided on red.
I removed the tape, sanded away and stuck the pieces on the frame with hot glue.
Isn't it cute?
I also sanded the nautical pieces.
If you look close, you can see the original blue, yellow, gold, and silver where I sanded it...hahahah

Hope you like it Kayla! I will miss you! xoxo
