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. 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:

Eco Board (ATC sized)
Mini Images Art Collage   
Dew Drops 
Metallic Rub-on Sets 
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:
