Creating Art for less than $10 August 28, 2012

If you’re looking for a great gift idea, a way to display family photos or just need an inexpensive alternative wall art, check this out!

If you remember, last spring, I traveled to Italy. Venice was one of my favorite stops along the way! It seemed like every turn I made, brought a prettier site then before. I especially loved the canals and photographed every one of them, I think!

So, I finally got around to framing a few of my favorites. First of all, I picked up this frame at Michael’s that had already been pre-matted to show four, 5 x 7 photographs.

The frame was on sale for less than $10! And even better, all I had to do was print out my photographs and place them where they showed me to put them. No guess work involved! My kind of project!

As a side note, please know that I am not a professional photographer. I do not edit photographs. What you see is what you get!

I’m not sure if it’s really noticeable, but I use watercolor paper to print my pictures on. It gives the photograph a nice texture, whether you are putting the photograph in a frame, or in a scrapbook.

Not bad for $10, right? Do you have any photographs to frame?

    The pics look softer on the different paper. Very clever!
