Dorm Dec Wednesdays: I've Been Framed!

I love the idea of 'instant art'.  Pretty much anything can become something to decorate your home.  A great website to check out is The Graphics Fairy.  This blog offers a load of vintage images & a few that are deemed 'instant art'.  Print them out on whatever paper you like, then frame them! Resize the images to fit the frame or the room, too!

Ok, back to frames.  Here's the frame (again) that I picked up from the Dollar Tree:

Isn't it great? It's pretty ornate & very shabby chic.  I love the gold accents. Framed is a piece of my Dard Hunter Keepsake with a back ground of scrapbook paper. Scrapbook paper also makes some great instant art & a great way to mat your pictures.  I framed a load of the keepsakes.

Here is a very inappropriate gnome matted with scrapbook paper:

He has a brother but I couldn't get a good picture.  This picture is horrible! These hang in the entry way to my room.

Children's art can be some great art too.  This is a picture my brother painted in grade school:

It adds a bit of whimsy to the decor.  I can't remember if I showed you all this before....

Speaking of framing scrap book paper, try silhouettes like this:

I used 12x12 scrapbook paper and an album cover frame to create this cool wall hanging.  I just searched animal silhouettes in google.  Try it with letters to monogram a child's room or nursery.  That would also be great for weddings or other parties!

Make it seasonal too! Frame an orange pumpkin made from patterned scrapbook paper in front of a black matte or patterned background or a patterned green tree on a red back ground.  Use a small frame to add it to your seasonal vignettes.

Can you tell I love frames? Happy Framing!
