This is the first time I attempted painting something along with a frame for it as well.

Here are some roses I painted . . .

. . . and when I'd finished, I used the colours left on the palette to add little bits of interest on the frame.

You can see the deep red on the left corner; it's also on the upper right corner.
I also put some green on the the bottom right, and on it's diagonally opposite corner.
This way, I hoped to pull the whole thing together.
The whole caboodle is finished with two coats of Mod Podge, which gives it a nice soft sheen, and protects the surfaces as well.
