Stacy Shaeffer Photography does great on location shots. She did our family portrait at a nearby abandoned old school house. She is opening her studio to be able to do head shots and traditional shots, but is still hoping to do most of her work on location.
I have added some touches of rustic french country into her space. I have done chairs, her reception desk and some fun frames for her walls. I can't wait to see how the frames look once she adds her photographs in them. I will share those pieces after she has her grand opening.
Her grand opening is this Sunday, July 22, 2012 12-5pm. She is having free appetizers, goody bags and quite a few raffles. I have donated this picture in her raffle. Details of the event can be found here.
This frame was an old oak frame. I painted it with homemade teal chalk paint and then multiple layers of dry brush in teals, browns and reds. I glazed with walnut stain. I sealed it with wax and poly.
I cut a old gift box to the right size to slide into the frame. I used the back natural side of the box. I decided to use the same birds I created for a sign for my mom. I added the birds with my tea stain ink for a soft tone on tone soft effect.
Swing by and check Stacy's studio out, and maybe you'll be lucky and come home with these birds or some other great raffle.
