Ever since I saw Wendy Smedley's post on wall displays I knew I wanted to frame a collage with a frame. I had a frame that I had picked up for $10 and was excited to be thrifty. Unfortunately, I waited so long to put it up that the frame went wonky. I still haven't given up on that one but until I can entice the hubs to use his power tools for my crafty good it will sit unhung.
However, I couldn't get the idea out of my head. So, I took advantage of a Michael's frame sale and bought a new exterior frame & interior frames.
Once the exterior frame was hung I traced the interior frames on the tissue paper the clerk had wrapped them in.
Then I cut each tracing, marked where the nail would hang & labeled each tracing and frame.
Originally I had purchased six frames for the interior but once I put up my tracings I realized I only had room for four.
Then I hung my frames on top of the tracings to make sure everything was where I wanted it to be.
Filled the frames with pictures and pulled off the tracings. Now, I get to look at some of my favorite shots of Garrett as I stand at my scrap table.
Have a great weekend!! I've started picking my papers for my December Daily Album and hope to share this coming week.
