Classical Wall Art - ATC Size

Anyone else a big fan of the museum gift shops? I especially yearn to own every tiny, framed, famous painting. Those that fit in the palm of your hand and can be displayed anywhere. 
I needed to DIY my own. AlteredPages.com to the rescue!



This is a very simplified process. Eco Board, dry adhesive, and an image. You decide if you want to gingerbread-it-up. I added some trims of chipboard from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts and rubbed some gilding paste.  Temporary adhesive on the back and voilĂ 

The supply list is manageable:

Chipboard  
Eco Board (ATC sized)
Mini Images Art Collage   
Adhesive 
Dew Drops 
Metallic Rub-on Sets 
Cardstock  
Temporary Adhesive  

The images I chose and printed on cardstock:



Trimmed and adhered to the ATC Eco Board with dry adhesive.



Added chipboard trimmings onto some dry adhesive.


With all four sides trimmed, the metallic rub-on gives a gilded shine.



The other image received a similar treatment. Dew Drops were added for the blank corners.


Here they are together.



The newly "framed" Classical Art has a new home beside the front door:



Here you can see it in relation to the door:

  4. These look wonderful - the diecuts look like some sort of gold-colored metal! I would never have thought of using the borders in this way - thanks!
