New Life for Some Old Work
My great niece is still a preteen but she's very much into fashion, loves watching design shows, and designing outfits. For her last birthday gift I decided to frame one of my old fashion illustrations from college in the 70's. It took my sister-in-law & I forever to decide which of my old works we thought she might like best and it ultimately was decided by which one I could find a frame to fit (most were tall & narrow). Instead of the normal matting, I just added 2 strips of mat down the sides of the drawing to fit it in the frame. Makes me think I should break out the watercolors again (so many project ideas, so little time).
