This frame was a garage sale find. Once home, the glass shattered, so the frame sat neglected for almost two years, completely buried under half-finished and half-forgotten projects. It was rescued back to life while poking around for something to display my Twinkle, Twinkle Book Page Stars wreath.
There is a pre-attached wire strung across the back of the frame that I want to keep on. I hate those little tooth-hook-holders on the backs of some frames, I usually end up adding a wire to those because I have an easier time hanging them. Anyways, the wire would be exposed if the back of the frame was taken off. Again, I like the wire...just don't wanna see it..
What to do?
Out came the aluminum foil, stretched a couple pieces across the front, then placed it back in the frame.
What do you think?
I like how it subtlety reflects light and doesn't add another competing color (had considered adding scrap book paper to the back instead).
Another option: linen or burlap
The con: would loose the light reflection
painted with acrylic paint: Laguna, by Apple Barrel
distressed to calm down the intensity of the color
So, pass or fail?
