Knock off part 2...

I put up my ABC canvas today.
It did not look right.

See look how boring. Just a bunch of beige shapes.
So I tried to add some color to the mix.
Now there was just a bunch of beige shapes with a red circle.
I decided to paint the frames.
I absolutely love these frames.
They have a fun paisley pattern on them.
First they were green.
Then linen with a brown wash. (like the picture above)
Then finally they ended up a robins egg blue color with a brown wash.
I added fabric ties at the top to finish them.

In the end I decided that the canvas looked unfinished without a frame.
Lucky I had a big one out in the garage.
It is too big, so there is about an inch boarder between it and the canvas.
I painted it red.
I am loving the red and the blue.
To bad my camera is taking horrible pictures.
It looks much better in person.

I think your letter board and painted frames look great together! Amazing job on the letters by the way! Seems like it was some work. Thanks for your comments about my craft area--it's been a long time coming!
