Postcard Art...

Friday, August 27, 2010



Here is an idea for making a fun new addition to your wall decor without breaking the budget.  Choose a decorative postcard (like this one of a watercolor by Beatrix Potter) and mount it on textured paper.  Papers like the one used here can be found at most art stores.  Next, select a frame with some character and cut or buy a matte that fits the frame and complements the postcard.  Attach thick grosgrain ribbon to the matte and tape it underneath.  Then, assemble the mounted postcard and ribbon trimmed matte in the frame  and ...voila...your own masterpiece ready for hanging!
