What it Takes... (for me)
Watercolor pencils. Created by my 3 kids back in the 1990s...yikes.
Drawings my kids did wwaaayyyy back in the day.
I taught an after school art class at an elementary school.
My own 3 had to attend.
These are done in oil pastel.
WHAT IT TAKES....FOR ME. to get artwork framed and on the wall.
I have collected wooden frames for a couple decades. I have boxes of them!
*I have the art I want to frame, in this case SIX small pieces that I have saved for 25 years! Sheesh.
*I select the right size frames for the art.
*Remove the thrift store art.
*Wash the glass.
*Clean the frame, then spray it the color I want-wait for it to dry, inspect and re-spray if necessary.
*Cut mat board backing to proper size.
I used to mat all my work but have eliminated that step. I just frame the art by itself now.
*Secure into frame- I use cable staples.
*Measure for hanging wire- place two "Eye" screws- loop through wire.
I am SUCH a procrastinator (see the part about taking 25 years to get this done) so if I'm gonna do it,
I REALLY need to start and finish within a couple days.
