if you are a sixties or seventies kid, one look at this frame and you can probably name off at least one person you knew who had a set of these metal frames with an art print hanging in the dining room or living room. the bummer part is that one had the convex glass and the other frame was missing the glass; so i removed it from both so i could use the frames.
i did use the original print cardboard back and simply drew a template so i knew what shape and size my mixed media piece needed to be. a little paint, some collage, and i threw a little sewing of some sari ribbon onto the front....and poof! i am calling this piece done.
i did spray the frames black and then, sanded some of the edges.
