Teacher Gift - Mixed Media Collage Photo Frame

Hey Everyone!
So here is a project that is NOT a card!!! WOOHOOO!. So my son completed the 1st grade on 6/14. I created this for him to give to his teacher. This is my first attempt at a mixed media collage and wanted to so something more functional for the teacher since I would not have the image she would want to use the place on a canvas. This was she can interchange the picture whenever she wants.
The base photo frame is a MDF Frame from Michael and holds a 5x7 Photo. I believe the frame itself is 12x12 not 100% sure. To check out the video please click HERE. I am pleased with the way that it turned out. I used way too many products to list them all here so please check out the video if you want to know the products used.There is tons of texture on this which I totally love!
Thank you!
