Frame this

 I have had these frames for a few years, yes I know.. but it took me a while to figure out what to do with them. I originally bought them to cover them with flowers, inspiration from one I saw in a very upscale shop. I couldn't get it to look right so I went the mixed media route, and I think they turned out very nice.
 I copied the Paris wall plaque you can see on the left and then decoupaged it to the frame. I love the way Paris and the Eiffel tower look.
 I also thought a Marie Antoinette style picture would look nice in it and the colors really look pretty good together.
   Frame #2.   I printed a lot of things from the Graphic Fairy on regular paper, and decoupaged them on and  I  haven't decided if it needs to be antiqued a bit to pull it all together.
The graphic Fairy has so many wonderful images and I love the labels and the script pages they all work together so nicely.
The picture of the merry-go-round horses came with the frame, and I haven't decided what to put in it instead.  Point of interest, Merry-go-rounds travel different direction in different countries clockwise in one, and counter clockwise in the other I don't remember which is which.
 I have been in a bit of a creative slump and haven't done much but I thought I would share these.
