Here is a short video
Jennifer used an old black and white photo, but any photo will work. Change the feel of your piece by adding different colored flowers and trims and different colored mists.
You can see how the mist adds a little bit of sheen and interest to the piece. The drips of blue mist add vintage patina appeal.
