Use project scraps to make a custom frame that matches your home decor. Start by stitching squares of paper together. Add photos to painted metal frames, then attach a frame to each square of patterned paper. Back it all with a thick piece of chipboard, foam core board, or particleboard. Miter the ends of painted metal strips to create the outer frame. Add accents that match and a ribbon to hang it.
aquarela+doodles: the thicker the watercolor + the less water you use, the better. make simple shapes (circles, squares, rectangles, etc). once dry, make doodles and drawings outlining the shapes with black pen. use white pen for details (balls, hearts, circles, etc). you can use this as a doodle by itself orrr turn it into a background for a scrapbook pg or art jounral (see: http://maisarmendonca.blogspot.com/2011/06/aquarela-faca-seu-proprio-papel.html)
