Frame It Friday // Intro

Frame It Friday

If you follow my blog or social media then you will know that I love to fill my house with art and gallery walls.

I get so excited when I find new things to frame or new frames to fill and I find them in the most unusual places.

People often comment where is that picture from and they can’t believe it was a £2 postcard.

So I have decided to have a new weekly feature on my blog called Frame It Friday, it will include any of the following…

  • A piece of art you can frame
  • A frame itself
  • Alternative products that can be framed
  • How to on upcycling a frame
  • How to on making things to frame
  • A look at other people’s art in their homes
  • Art and Frames from my Home

And any more little things that come to me over the series, I am also asking for challenges, so if you are looking for that perfect frame then ask away, or a piece of art you have been searching the web for then let me know.

If you are an artist and you would like your work featured please do email me. Or maybe you would like me to share Frames in your home.

I am so excited to get started, the first Frame It Friday shall be January 1st 2016, so come back and take a look. For now here are a few sneak peeks of Frame It’s in my Home.

  • Kara I NEED you in my life! Ok, here is a challenge, I’ve been searching for inexpensive square frames to hang on a wall that are just normal frame depth, you know a few cms or so, but all I ever see are ones with massively deep frames. I’ve looked everywhere! Similarly to you I love framing cards but have so many square ones so if you have any tips of where I Could look please let me know X #HomeEtc

    Oh wow I mid way through sorting our walls and pictures out. I have been unable to decide what to do, I swap and change between a gallery wall and a neat, uniformed approach. I will watch your series with interest xx

    • I do this too. I love the style of neat but i know it is not me. So all mine are a all over mess lol.
      Would love to feature you once done if you would like xx
