Art prints as artsy frames...

I have been adding new prints & original art to my 2nd Etsy Shop~
This new print is a lot of fun!

The little wren is happily perched on a vintage style tag!
The tag is printed from one of my antique ephemera files...
I cut the ephemera in the shape I wanted, punched a hole &
with watercolor aged the edges & painted a salmon-tone hole enforcer.

I like these vintage-style photo corners...
Most craft stores carry them~ sometimes they are in the fine art area.

One example of how you can "add" to my Wren print~
I found a vintage photograph of the dearest baby!
You could add graduation name cards, a little poem...
A sweet stitched piece...
A little love note~

I love vintage treasures~

A finished piece, ready to frame~

Another print I will add to my shop soon!

Hope your day is filled with fun and creative projects~
If the rain stays away I have squash to plant!

Your art and your talent -- makes me smile. And the idea of using these pieces for small photographs, for gifts as special occasions...that's brilliant!
