So here are the frames I worked on last weekend. I had in mind something like this but just wasn't sure exactly what I wanted. The first frame is actually the last one I did. I chose two quotes about this photo of a moth I intend to enlarge and place in the frame. I didn't have too many quotes to chose from, so these were the best two I could find.This frame was the first one I did. Libelula means dragonfly in spanish. I had written a poem about dragonflies when I was in Costa Rica and on here is all words or sayings from my poem.
This is the second frame I did. I have this cool spider I took a picture of in Costa Rica and plan to enlarge it for this frame. In this frame I put a bunch of names of different kinds of spiders.
To do these frames which were originally wood (I wish I would have taken a before and after) I primed them in white paint, sanded them slightly and then spray painted them black. Then I painted all the words on the frames and hand sanded them down again. I was going for a distressed, vintage look. They turned out more or less like I was hoping. :) All in all I am satisfied with the results.
A cool old Long Ranger book from the 1940's or so (I don't want to go grab it :) ) It isn't in that great of shape but it is too cool.
