My creative space...

I had been thinking of doing some framing for months and finally got around to it before we started packing. I had this recycled frame and removed the Masonite. I then cut my own mount using archival mount board.

After cutting the window, I mounted the print I had chosen on a second piece of mount board using Japanese paper hinges and wheat starch paste. I also cleaned the original glass before sealing the package using framers tape. I cannot wait to display this!


  1. That looks lovely. I've been using charity shop frames and greetings cards to make thrifty art, but I'm not sure I'd be too confident at making my own mount. Maybe I should give it a try. I like the print you've chosen, I'm always drawn to birds.

  2. I must admit, I had to practice before I was happy with the cuts. It can be difficult to get perfect corners on the mount. However it is so rewarding. Yes give it a try! Ames :)
