I started with a new wooden frame that I primed and painted white. I covered it with beach sand then embellished it with Rose Cups and Red Umbonium shells and an assortment of small white shells. The picture opening is for a 2 1/2'' x 3 1/2'' picture. The outside frame is 3 1/4'' x 4 1/4''. I then sprayed with a clear sealer to protect and add shine. I use an industrial strength glue on all my projects. The frame will be packed safely for it's journey to you! This would be perfect for that small wallet size photo to sit on your desk, also makes a great gift!
