FRAMES AT HOME:
Making funky frames at home.
Today we scrounged around the house to find some wooden frames that we could paint and display some of our artwork and photos.
These are two of the frames that were in desperate need of some creative intervention.
We started by painting the frames black.
This was a mini canvas that was needing to be painted over. I found a great drawing that my son had done of a pirate ship. I first painted a rough black boarder and let it dry. I traced the picture using carbon paper.
I love using just black and white because it is soo striking and together the frames have a bold presence.
I love the result and only for a few hours work!
FRAMES AT SCHOOL:
Making funky frames at school.
I filled old sauce bottle with equal amounts of paint and PVA glue.
Mix them up thoroughly.
When these are dry they have a fabulous shiny finish. I took photos of all the children in my class and displayed on a wall which attracts a lot of attention and stimulates plenty of conversation.
Drag out some old photo frames or make some out of cardboard and enjoy displaying your children's photos and artwork.
