I’ve Been Framed

A few years ago I wet and needle felted a Rooster portrait.  Of course, its been sitting in my UFO pile.  I wrote about it here:


I had a canvas frame I had used for something else and decided to use the rooster pic to cover it.

Then I tried it on several colored walls.

But I wasn’t really thrilled.  I felt something was missing. Then  I found a frame I thought would be perfect.

So, I removed all the staples, steamed out the bumps and mounted it in the frame.

Here’s a  closeup of the distressed frame which just happens to have a turquoise/teal color accent.

It’s found its home in the teal kitchen.

I think it all ties together nicely.  I feel like I’m looking out a farmhouse window at the rooster. What do you think?

    That really is a perfect match, Marilyn 🙂 Your rooster picture deserves it too. And I do love your teal wall!

    • Marilyn aka Pandagirl says:

      Thanks Zed! I do love teal and it’s variations. I wish the camera could pick up the true color. The pic doesn’t do it justice.
