Play Date Cafe challenge

I have had this photo frame for ages, but didn't know what to do with it other then put photos in it !!!
I have an albumn full of ATC's so decided, that, as this weeks colours began with turquoise, I would adapt this for the challenge.
I painted the box with a gesso which has weeny glass beads in it.
I love the look and then painted over with the turquoise paint






This is on a swivel, so it has four sides.

This is an ATC which means an Artists Trading Card where people from all over swap these little cards. They measure 2 1/2ins by 3 1/2 ins and they cannot be bought.
