I was at my parents house the other day looking through the pictures that they have on their computer when I came across a few I hadn't seen before. One is a fantastic picture of my late Grandma Minnie riding a bike down an old main street!So cute! I also found one of my dad riding a huge bike as a kid and also one of him playing the accordion with an adorable expression.
I decided I'd like to make a picture collage for a small space in my bedroom. I bought some mattes at the dollar store a while ago and finally got around to putting the pictures in them last night.I was thinking that I would make some frames, but when I went downstairs the chop saw was gone!! Joe is helping a neighbor frame his basement. I guess no frame making for me. I still wanted to get them done so I ended up just using paint as a frame. At first I was using painters tape, but the tape peels off some of the paper matte, so I just used the edge of another matte and that worked great.It really gives the feel of a framed picture, especially if you don't put them up in a spot where people are going to see them up close...Hey you can't beat three bucks!!
