United We Stand Wall Hanging

 Hello there! We all know 4th of July is right around the corner. I love seeing all the red white and blue out at the stores. All the things for cooking out and for picnic's and endless hours of swimming and summer fun.
I found this frame at Goodwill and it was an awful gold color but I loved the shape and saw lots of potential.
 I put a couple coats of Gesso on the frame first to give the white paint something to hold on to. It took 2 coats of white paint on top of the Gesso to cover up the icky gold. I painted the back that is screwed into the back and really wasn't removable so I made do. I sprayed Glimmer Mist for extra sparkle. I used Glue Dots® Permanent to attach the flowers to the frame and to the back. They worked wonderfully. :)
I used Thickers for the letters and added Glue Dots® Mini to help keep them attached. I used Glue Dots® Craft for the stars. I am certain everything is attached well thanks to my Glue Dots®. I used a paint brush and lightly and messily added Glimmer Mist in Dazzling Diamonds to the letters and an all over spray for sparkle.
  You could remove the glass from a picture frame and do the same type of thing for endless possibilities.
I hope you all have a fun and safe 4th of July!
 Happy Crafting!
