Scathingly Brilliant Idea……

Doesn’t pan out quite like I thought it would! 

I went to the big box store and bought a piece of nice wood thinking I would cut it down to the size I wanted the finished pieces to be (saving the cost of buying cradle boards.)
I bought molding to frame them.  
Then I experimented to see if it was better to prime and glue everything first before adding the artwork, or after.

I glued and primed one hundred pieces.

Then I commenced on the artwork. 

The idea was to ‘transfer’ my faces onto these 4x6 mock cradle boards to hang as another gallery.  (Making a one of a kind, able to hold in your hand piece of art as opposed to a digital file.)
This is as far as I’ve gotten! 

 Not quite one hundred, but I’m done!
 It wasn’t quite the brilliant idea I thought it was going to be. LOL


  1. One hundred or not, I think what you have done is brilliant....especially like that you have the whole, incl. frame, the same colour. Really works :-)

  2. I think it looks great. I also like the way you colored the frames to match.

  3. OMG, what a job! But it was worthwhile, the matching frames look wonderful, a joy to the eye this gallery!

  4. Your Rogue's Gallery is impressive. Love how the colors coordinate and complement the artwork.

  5. what a great setup!! great idea for displaying your artwork.

  6. It's not? What isn't brilliant about it? I can never find frames I like and you have something uniquely your own. You've done good girl even if there aren't 100!

  7. This is beautiful! I wonder what their size is. You have an art wall of 8 pieces plus 92 opportunities for projects-to-come.


I appreciate your comments!
