for the first time ever, i spray painted; & no one got hurt...update on my frames

my frame/photo collage DIY is still a work in progress...i'm gettin' there! you can see my inspiration for what i want to do here and the frames that i got at garage sales here if you missed it!

anyway, dylan is house sitting/dog sitting for his uncle this week, and their backyard backs onto a field, so it was a perfect place to do my spray painting. since i've never spray painted anything before, i didn't know whether i would make a mess or if something would unintentionally be turned black! so, lets take a look at my progress, shall we?
first things first, the handsome spooner.
the first pile of frames to get done..
isn't this such a well matched outfit?? ;) i wore old stuff in case i sprayed myself...
time to set up! 
woo look at me go. i think this is actually my favorite frame of the group. 
actually having fun! haha
 my roots are quite evident in these pics..shhh
and one more of the dog!

i think i've still got 3 or 4 frames left to do. then up next is finding pictures i want to put in! i see that taking a while...i'll have to rummage through my computer and see if i find anything that catches my eye. and i think dylan and i are going to go around toronto with a camera too sometime and take pictures at the Lawrence market perhaps. i think we might try and come up with some theme to base the photos around..just not sure what that is yet.

keep you posted at the next step!

Might have to steal this idea from you- it's so easy and inexpensive! I can't wait to see how it turns out for you!

I LOVEEE the frames! Can't wait to see them displayed

and

I just read that roots are "in" right now.

I hate mine (my hair needs to be dyed pronto) but supposedly all the celebs are wearing them. I think I read that on f21.com

I really need to find some frames and spray paint them...especially being the photo junky that I am. Your frames look great so far!

I love your tattoo, by the way :)
