A Frame full of beads

A Frame full of beads
Hi Friends
I have made another Photo frame, this one is for the lessology ' Feel the bead' challenge.
I have used an old photo frame, the glass was broken and the back was lost and it was patiently sitting in my stash for a chance at another life!!

I have made the back with a recycled piece of cardboard covered with PP from a wedding invite.outlined the mirrors with green/blue three D outliner from fevicryl.Pl do write in, I love to read your comments and suggestions.

There are a number of layers on this one, first used my homemade Gesso and stuck round mirrors at intervals, then stuck the long pipe glass beads and then covered the frame with the copper coloured seed beads. there was no need for glue as all this was embedded into Gesso layer. Used some metallic acrylic colors in copper , gold , black, green and blue on the frame with both wet and dry brushing technique.

I am in two minds ; whether to use this as a mirror after getting a piece of Mirror fixed in the frame or as a photo frame. your suggestions please........
