Frame: a rigid structure that surrounds something such as a picture, door... a border or case for enclosing artwork, a mirror, etc. 2. a rigid structure formed of relatively slender pieces, joined so as to surround sizable empty spaces..
"surrounding empty spaces"
So other than the norm...the ordinary uses...the expected framing projects, what else do YOU do with frames ??
A pretty little "what-not" table tray?
Give definition to another display of art?
Enclose some WALL WORDS?
Top an unframed Mirror and surround another mirror?
Finish off a crafted Fabric creation?
Give some back-up to a Dish Display?
Add an element of chippy "vintage" to some rustic comtemporary art?
Top and embellish a Table? (formerly framed and covered a mirror)
Surround a Plate? (wrought iron frames count too! originally held wooden plaque)
Don't Forget Window Frames...
Create a Table Top Shadow-Box display?
Frame Photos and Sayings.
So many ideas and uses for an empty frame. Here are a couple of on-line photos showing frames as ceiling medallions.... Neat! I like this use. I'm sure I'll experiment with this one day.
So when you see a frame you really like, (but NOT what it is surrounding) think outside the box. Get the Frame, Toss the art. Get CREATIVE! :-) :-)
FRAME FUN! Something to think about on this snowy day. Still coming down here in Cedar Rapids today.
Hope you ALL have a wonderful day, whatever the weather. Rain, Snow, Sleet, Sunshine, Clouds....Have fun in the nest when you don't want to go OUT of it.
