Framing Sketches

Hey There!

This week has been super busy: I am in official art show prep (for more info see the events page)!! I’ve been buying boatloads of frames from different thrift stores, spray painting them, and matching them with different sketches. It’s way more fun than just taking them to Michael’s or something because it’s like a treasure hunt figuring out which sketches go best with which frames..

Anyways! Enough rambling. Here’s the proof that I actually did what I’m telling you about. ๐Ÿ˜›

This is my has been my workstation the last few days.. Thank goodness for a massive kitchen table!

Here are some close ups of a few of my favourites so far..

The shoe and dwarf are both minis..two or three inches tall.

I think this one is my personal favourite right now. I love the mix of grays with the pink together with her expression. Sometimes the magic is just there!

These last two also look really sharp, I was especially excited about the black frame because, if you can see, it’s just glass between the frame and the sketch. This one is also my hubby’s favourite right now. ๐Ÿ™‚

Other than frames there is a lot to do to prepare for a show!

Yes, I have my art, the tent, and the biz cards, but there’s a lot of other details that I still need to think about. Tablecloths, a moneybox, other display items like boards to hang the paintings on….Price tags, packaging (bags, newspaper, etc), bio cards.

Should I have an email list? What would I email them about? I need to order square.. this little thing that plugs into your phone so you can take credit card payments.

Thankfully, I’m not the first person ever to attempt this so there are tons of list and tips online.

Aannd.. that’s it for now ๐Ÿ™‚

See ya!
