Frame art from an old book

After creating this mini gallery wall in the laundry without spending a single cent, I thought I’d start a series on affordable art as I mentioned yesterday. First up we have the sweet little scene in the top left frame.

It came from an art book that I’d inherited following the passing of my great auntie some years ago. She had quite the book collection and was very interested in art, so when the family was going through her house and I was allowed to take a few books I chose this one.

I was taken by the naive style, although I must admit not all of the artworks were winners:

Yikes. Not really what I had in mind.

This was more like it! The frame I already had lying around, so it was just a matter of carefully slicing out the page and trimming it to size. I know some people get thingy about ruining books. But the way I see it, I am honouring the book’s contents more by having it on display for us (and any visitors) to see and enjoy it every day, rather than the book gathering dust or being chucked out.

Anyway, I have been meaning to frame this for years so I’m stoked that it is finally up. It makes me smile every time I see it.
