Dream. Be Inspired. Create. Challenge Two

Not sure what is going on, check this out first!

New and want to check out Day One?

One thing I love doing, is using something average, and making it a work of art!

This could be anything from

- - - glitter, paper, and lettering to make a fun grad card

Colored paper cut into circles to make a globe - - -

- - - or even a few small brown lunch bags to make a welcome to the neighborhood album!

One item I really love using to create magic, and haven't written about, is frames!
Yup. Ordinary photo frames.

Here is why I L.O.V.E. them:

ONE: they are cheap! Watch for clearance, thrift stores, garage sales... you might not need the glass in the frame (watch for clearance at Michaels), or can tear out that interested 70's art from that beautiful wood frame at the thrift store!

TWO: They do not always need to be in perfect shape!

THREE: They can be used for SO many projects!

Take this frame, for example!

Pretty typical 8x10 frame. I could print a photo and let it sit in this frame and things would be just fine. However a few ideas instead...

You could also...
  • use a rub on word over a photo, OR on the frame or glass!
  • Put your favorite kitchen themed paper in it and hang in your food prep area
  • Find a cork mat and use the frame to make a cord board
  • Use vinyl lettering on your wall and frame

Here are a couple other frame projects I have done.

Today's Challenge:

Find a typical object, such as a photo frame, and see what you can come up with!
Post about it on your blog and sign the Mister Linky to let us know to come check it out!
