Believe Framed

I made this last year with watercolour pencils. I had it professionally framed, and was amazed at how good it looked! There is something amazing about seeing your own art in a frame like this! I highly recommend it.

Peace Banner

A papercraft banner that I made from scrapbook paper, gold ribbons, and glitter. With a little bit of creative lettering, of course! It was easy to make, relatively inexpensive, and will be a great holiday decoration!

Some of the banner letters in more detail. The colour combination and the use of gold and glitter gives it a real vintage feel!

I did this piece last year, but only had it framed recently. What a difference a custom frame makes!

I have had this frame for a very long time, but I never knew what to put into it. It now sits on my fireplace hearth. The ornaments shimmer in the firelight.
