Fleur-de-lis Frame

I love frames.  That's no secret.  Every now and then I come across a frame that seems incomplete to me.

This metal frame had nice details, but I though it should have something on top.  Sorry, I was almost finished with the redesign before I realized I didn't take a before pic.

A while back, I bought a bunch of metal fleur-de-lis.  I found them while digging through my boxes. 

With the pointy details on the frame, the fleur-de-lis just seems to work.  I gave it layers of paint (with a little plaster for texture) to unify it.  Because I have a thing for imperfections, I distressed it a bit.

I'm off to embellish more frames, and boxes.  See ya soon.

Rosemary, your frame is so beautiful with the fleur-de-lis that I can't picture it without it! Will you just look at the two swirls at the very bottom of the frame and how perfectly they complement the fleur-de-lis?!? You are amazing! xoxo
