Wild West Auction Frame II

Wild West Auction Frame II

I’ve been working away on those blank wooden picture frames to make them into Wild West themed picture frames!  I decided to take the second frame in a girly direction, pulling out some retired DSP and embellishments.  (You can see my first Wild West picture frame by following the link.)

Once again I pulled out the Simply Pressed Clay.  I got right to work laboring over some cowgirl boots (not that my “cowgirl boots” look any different than “cowboy boots” mind you).  I finally formed them into an acceptable shape and set them out to dry.  Back at the picture frame, I was adding finishing touches to what could be done before adding the boots. . . .  Then I realized . . . I made the boots facing the wrong direction . . .  Ugh.  Back to the clay to try again . . .

You can be assured the first pair of boots will appear on another frame, they will NOT go to waste!

Here is a close up picture of the boots.  I don’t claim to be very good with clay, but I figure when my husband and children can tell me what they are, they must be passable.

Two more picture frames to go.  I don’t mean to clog the blog with tons of picture frames . . . but I try to share what I’m working on . . . and this just happens to be what I’m working on . . . around Christmas Floral Arrangement preparations!

I’m off to teach Kindergarten today.  Maybe I should take a frame for the class to decorate, what do you think?


  1. Becky, I never tire of anything that you create. You have pressed my buttons with the “Wild West Auction Frame II”, I have boots, not that color, which I love on this frame. I wish I lived close enough and I would be the first to arrive and the last to leave. I would wear my jeans and boots, no hat and a nice western shirt. I wouldn’t mind having a frame exactly like the one you so carefully created, I would take such good care of it. Thank you for sharing your beautiful creation and you have a fun day at school with all the children.
