Finishing and Hanging
There had been some discussion about how to frame my Hummingbird picture I blogged about here:
Shadow boxes seemed to be the popular vote, so I bought a deep shadow box. I didn’t have many choices because of the size 10 x13″ (25 x 33 cm)
But when I got it home and took it apart I didn’t realized the glass couldn’t be removed without breaking it. Plus I didn’t like the color of the frame next to the picture. So, I decided to return it.
I found another regular frame in gold that I liked. It’s hard to see in these photos. But I liked the way it showed off the dimension no matter what angle you see it from. I first hung it on a dark green wall.
But it’s home is now in the kitchen between two windows on a teal wall. I’m sorry the camera doesn’t pick up the actual teal and gold colors. It is really striking, plus it’s next to where I sit at the table.
Then I found a spot in the kitchen for my crocheted Starburst Potholder. Unfortunately, I also caught the shadows.
Lastly, I hung my “Red Dawn” that I had done in Ruth’s Free Motion Stitching Class.
It is on a dark green column in my dining room. You probably noticed the rose color next to it which is the inside of the column next to it. So, I felt it pulls those two together.
Both Red Dawn and the potholder are hung with the Command Strips we’ve been discussing on the forum.
I have a huge pile of felt pictures I have done, but don’t know if they will ever get framed or hung. I don’t think I have enough wall space in my home. Although I do change things out occasionally.
What do you do with your creations?
