Kraft it up with Picasso

I walked past my daughter's table whilst visiting her.There was a frame she was painting and the background newspaper said Picasso.I thought how typical of her outlook to have something artistic there. Here's my layout.
Using Tim Holtz newsprint Kraft, I first misted using tan and turquoise through chicken wire mask.Then I added chevrons with gesso. The next layer was a sticker backing from a set of alphas (squares) to follow the frame idea.This is then reflected in the metallic frame (stick on),the larger title frame ,also stick-on some epoxy clear square brads and rock epoxy shaped circles.The cat sticker helped to break up the large chevron area.
