2 sided "love"

Hello Crafters....had been missing from action for the last 2 weeks due to some personal reasons and am back to routine.
This time I have a recycled altered photo frame. There is a small revelation at the end as to what has been recycled! If you are impatient just scroll down,else continue to enjoy reading!
All of us have mood swings and have different emotions to express...and so our vision of love too can be different, what say?
This photo frame has 2 sides, one side depicts the young, shabby chic kind of love and the other side reveals a mature, vintage kinda love! Howzzzat....

 Both patterns papers are from K&Co and for the shabby chic love, I have done some texture work with modeling paste and rose stencil. The little pink blooms are handmade and the heart slot for the photo is embellished with mauve pearls.

The blooms along with some flourish die cuts sit on a musical note stamped BG as if some romantic song is playing in the background and the silver net bow with the handmade pearl brad and the silver bells add a festive feel to this "Shabby chic Romance"! Some lace and a base with the sentiment stamped, completes this side of the frame.

Now for the next look....

The vintage side has some script stamped on the bg and have used black CC for the weathered clock.

The shaded red rose too id Tim Holtz and has some script stamped on the petals. The rose along with a feather and some weathered leaves adds a vintage feel to this side and the bling at the base gives it a royal feel! The small tag with some antique gold bells and the sentiment gives it the much required vintage feel to this romance!

This lovely frame is going out to my friend who owns a local stationery store, who has always supported my re cycling work and loves my creations too.
And now for the small revelation on the recycled item...have a look!
