I promised pictures of the frame-making process, so here they are. But first, let me introduce you to Sasha. She’s my friend’s roommate’s dog, and she’s awesome!
Okay, here’s how I made my frames, step by step.
I made a few/a ton of mistakes along the way. My best advice… Make sure you KNOW you’re attaching the right pieces and cutting things at the right angles. I accidentally used a piece that I cut about 1/4″ too short. I left the good one on a table to take pictures of it for my blog! Anyway, I was able to hammer out the bad piece and insert the correct one so my panel fit inside the frame. Whew. Also, don’t be afraid to draw on the trim if you have trouble remembering what angle to cut at. You can always erase pencil, or just paint right over it. I feel like if I can do this, anyone can. On the real!
I also took some pictures of a small painting today. This big guy kept getting in my way though.
That’s one of my dogs, Hugo. He’s half poodle half golden retriever and the biggest doofus ever. You’ll probably see pictures of my other dog Gidget sometime in the near future. Anyway, here’s that painting.
WAIT, that’s not it! DECKED was AWESOME! We had the Opening Reception this past Friday. If you couldn’t make it out, we’ll be open for 2nd Fridays on March 9th from 6-10. I’ll post pictures after this Friday’s event.
That’s it for now! Get out there and make some frames, people!
