Just pieces...

Throughout the year I save (and cherish!) the children's artwork...
I always have the intention to frame every piece in a fabulous chunky (expensive!) frame...
REALITY: I have three children! The cost would be astronomical!
and even if I could frame each piece I would never have enough wall space
to hang them all!

Cost effective solution:
Collage frame!

I chose some of the artwork that wasn't going to be framed- yes, I still frame some of the art each year- I just can't help it!

and I cut pieces from all three children's collection for the year...
piecing them together to form little collages...
this way I can still have their artwork -or should I say "pieces" of their artwork-
framed to enjoy!

The finished project!
Oh, I also added a little black glaze to the frame- just to take a little "gold" out.

Happy Friday!
Many Blessings!

  7. I love you children's artwork. Still working on my grandchildren to get that colorful in their work, but look forward to framing some when I get it.

  8. Gorgeous artwork! I love the idea of taking pieces and putting them in a collage frame. I'm not really a fan of collage frames for displaying photos, but I like the idea of using it for little works of art. Thanks for sharing!
