Just a few ideas for framing…
- Shadow Boxes for 3-D Objects - childhood memorabilia, wedding mementos, prizes, awards, ribbons, memorial pieces for a loved one or pet.
- Original artworks - oils on canvas, pastels, acrylics, watercolours, sketches, drawings, prints and children’s artworks.
- Mementos - newspaper articles, medals, diplomas, family photos, letters, announcements, wedding photos and invitations.
- Business- licenses, certificates, documents, blue prints, and your first dollar.
- Hobbies - needle work, stamps, fishing hooks, family tree collages, posters, maps, puzzles and coins.
- Words of Inspiration- poetry, love letters, quotes and moving passages.
- Mirrors - I can add a beautiful frame to a special mirror.
- It is important to remember picture frames are meant to enhance your art, not compete with it. Custom framing is a long term investment, so invest wisely.
The Art Gallery displays limited edition, original hand pulled prints unframed, matted and framed and paintings by Vicki Maclean. Also on display are nature and scenic photographs by Claire MacLean and handcrafted items and infamous Sunset Pepper Jelly.
