Thrifting treasures

Cheap all wood thrift frame.
It was golden with ugly dirty fabric.
Gold is not my favorite.
Pulled fabric off the middle wood area.

Used paint and a little antiquing medium.
 Reused the canvas included with the frame.
 It had a cheesy amateur landscape...not cute at all.

 Cut up magazines to create a cottage village scene.

You can do anything in this world
if you are prepared to take the consequences.

W. Somerset Maugham


  1. What a wonderful job you did! ...love your collage...the kids in our kindergarten class always love to make magazine collages but nothing like YOURS...just a jumbled mess usually but darling anyways....I LOVE your creativity...thanks for the inspiration

    1. Goodness. You are so sweet. Your work is so polished and mine is primitive like a kindergartener. High praise, indeed. I love magazines, thrifting, and crafting. My house is a homemaker's nightmare and a crafters' paradise. Honestly, cutting paper saved my life this year. I have already saved another frame for another project.
      Thank you a million times for your encouragement.
