Once I started trying out ideas, I couldn't stop. As always, the possibilities are endless. I love that kind of decor!
First came the dust jacket of a child's picture book. (Dust jackets annoy me and would get thrown out anyway. I glued this one to a piece of cardboard so it would hang flat.) Just for the fun of it, I pulled a few things from around the house to add to the display. I'm thinking I need to redecorate the boys' bedroom!
Since this frame is in our front room, I thought I would see what I could do to make the display a smidge more sophisticated. No problem.
How about a cooking or kitchen theme? I took a piece of black card stock and used chalk to create the menu (which, sadly, does not reflect our dinner menus in any way). Try photocopying a page from a vintage cookbook.Paper could be used a myriad of ways. Write favorite quotes or verses, for instance, or your happy list.
Enlarge photos and clip:Display scrapbook pages you've completed:Sheet music. I copied one of Levi's favorite songs from his piano book onto natural colored card stock:
For a great resource, shop for calendars. I found a calendar with pictures of vintage travel posters for a dollar a couple years ago. Use pictures from your old calendars or buy calendars after the first of the year for bottom dollar. Fine art calendars would be especially attractive; rotate the picture every week or two for art study!
Game night, anyone? I grabbed my Scrabble board to see how it would look. Love it! Now I want a game room with a huge collage of frames and game boards. When we're ready to play, we just make our choice from the wall and unclip the board.
Vintage photos and memorabilia. Children's artwork. Maps. Nature sketches. Loose pages out of old books. It is addicting, I tell ya!
