The frame was made out of scrap molding. I asked my husband to cut a piece of scrap wood to fit in it. He had a piece of masonite on hand so we used that. I painted it black after looking at it a few days.  The pearl letter and the angel are from a local craft store's $1.00 bin. I think the angel is made out of  plaster or something similiar.  I bought several and I guess i was the only one. They ended up being marked down to .50 after a few months. They were starting to get chips on them which, to me, added character. The letter is attached at the top of the frame by a ribbon so it has movement to it and stands out a little more. I finished the word Believe with acrylic paint.

Keep junking,
