botannical prints

For my eclectic gallery wall.
Take two gorgeous prints - £4.99 each at a charity shop.

Very nicely framed in London, but just not my cup-of-tea.

Open them up and find out that they ARE book pages.

Love those uneven edges.

Wonder about finding two matching frames in a charity shop.
Wonder about putting them behind glass without a mount.

Ponder some more.
Put two and two together - ie BOTH pieces of glass.
Sandwich the prints between the two, use ONE of the frames,

Ooh, I'm liking the floating botannical prints.
And the frame, which I disliked when I bought them, is now a
perfect little border. And I haven't used any tape to keep them in place.

If they're going in the gallery wall, they will end up on the white.
Although I do like them in front of the stencilling.

Will they go with my 'block' creation, from the last post - who knows.
You'll all find out when I do !!!

  1. Nice job Fiona! You certainly are keeping busy : )

  2. Told you so... once you start you never stop!

  3. What a great idea! It looks so updated floating in the glass.


  4. Love what you did with the botanicals. Thanks for following my blog. I'm following you back. You have some great ideas, and execution.

  5. Oh this is so clever!!! I love the floating look of these. The prints themselves are so pretty and this just really makes them stand out even more. I like them most against the stenciling, I think.

  6. can't wait to see you tomorrow!!! sending SUPPORTIVE hugs : )
