    Oh, I love how you’ve interpreted this quotation — and your presentation is perfect. I always agonize over the finish work – looks like you’ve got it down to a science.

      Thanks – I think I was just lucky to find that pair of frames, Penny. Lining them took a bit of figuring out, since the back wall is larger than the frame opening, and the back doesn’t come off. Got there in the end though!

    So SO inspired by these latest pieces. They are so lovely.

  8. Your reworking of the frames really enhances the work and I particularly love the Shakespeare. It’s given me an idea of what I could do with my ancient copy of Canterbury Tales – too tatty to use but too beloved to part with.

    They’re fantastic Karen. What a great idea to use favourite quotes and incorporate them into little framed pieces. The frames look great too after your treatment of them. Much nicer than bright red artificial gerberas! 🙂
