I love having candid shots of my loves around the house. But, I'm a nerd. I'm picky about the frames etc. Vintage frames make me the most happy and when I find them for a song I snatch them up. They might have an issue or two, but usually they are very usable and having a lovely patina to boot. I had been wanting to do an arrangement of pictures in my living room and so I set about to putting a recently acquired stack of metal and wood frames to use.
Never one to do the norm, I didn't want to be boxed in with using traditional matting. I like different colors and textures placed together in the same grouping. So I selected a variety of cardstocks and patterned papers and I cut them to fit the frames using my paper cutter and an oval shape that I found online. I then taped the pictures to the mats and stuck them into the frames. Up on the wall they went.
I am very pleased.
