your own artwork with personal photographs
If you have ever
watched trading spaces, you know how the designers always
design and create their own artwork for the rooms. And this
is something you can easily do yourself, even if you think
you do not have an artistic bone in your body.
The easiest way
feed or create your own artwork is by choosing of photographs
out of your personal collection. It doesn't have to be at
photo of people, it can be a picture of some scenery at a
place you visited, or even the view out your window. But it
should be appealing to the eye, and if it has some significance
to you that is your best choice.
Next take a snapshot
with you to craft store or even Wal-Mart, and find a frame
that will do the photograph justice. Sometimes even a boring
frame can be jazzed up with a vibrant matt in the shade that
draws out a feature in the photograph. So do not necessarily
be looking at only the most ornate or dramatic frames. Sometimes
simple frames can work just as well when you're creating your
artwork. Then, you'll get your picture blown up to the size
to match the frame, or printed out on your home computer if
it was a digital photograph.
If you have a series
of photographs and use to make your artwork into a related
collection try and purchase the frames of the same time. chances
are, you won't find that frame again when you decide to do
another 16 months from now.
