the functional frame

written by tammy

Time to take that simple wooden frame and make it work overtime!

With just a few screw-in hardware hooks you can transform that plain picture frame into a convenient place to keep your keys.

What To Do: Use a ruler to evenly space out where you will place the hooks. Mark your measurements with a pencil. With a hammer and a small nail, gently tap a tiny hole into each of your pencil marks. Twist your hooks into the holes and that’s it!!

Pick your favorite pre-Picasso to frame, hang it by the door, and enjoy your re-newed functional and fabulous frame.

carbon copy

written by tammy

Ever wish you could pick up a pencil and draw a life-like image in under five minutes? Well, you could practice, practice, practice… or you could carbon-copy it. Carbon paper is the original copy-machine. Not only is it quick and easy, but yields amazing results.

Simply place a piece of carbon paper between a clean sheet and the picture you want to copy. We used pictures from magazines in the recycling bin.

Use a pencil to outline the main shape of the image. You can also use this as a teaching technique to help identify line(s) in an image.

Remove the top two sheets to see the result. Beautiful! Paint or color your picture, or leave as is. Up to you!
