Hi! I’m Sherry Tyra, Welcome to my monkeysee.com video.
Today we’re talking about low cost artwork and right now I’d like to talk to you about finding your inspiration, finding the pieces that you want to frame. I like to think outside the box. I like to look in lots of different places for really unique pieces to frame.
One of the great places I found is going to a bookstore and looking at their bargain book section. You can find great coffee table books fro practically nothing. This big huge 2 inch book, I found for 9$ on a bargain table. This is a book o n art, there’s just tons of examples of different kinds of art in here. All different styles, impressionism of modern art, traditional art, all these make great pieces to frame. Craft paper this is a great place to look for fun, kicking little friends. I’ve taken this here, this was a match to one of this type of paper and look what it looks like frame, it’s great, it’s wonderful, it’s really fun. Gift bags, calendars are a great source of inspiration. You can find a larger calendars, get them after the holidays. They go on sale, they’re practically nothing and you can find calendars with great paper, wonderful art paper or even calendars like this. This is and impressionist calendar, look at all these great pieces that you can frame.
Greeting cards, a lot of greeting cards are typical, standard sizes, this is a 5x7 if it’s in a 5x7 framer matting perfect. So if you just think outside the box and look around this piece here was from this art book, the actual print itself was a little bit too small for the frames. What I did was I put black craft paper behind it, put the print on and then the matting and then the frame. Look at this gorgeous piece of art.
Next I’ll be showing you how to work with fabrics.
