Miniature....or art ?



You might remember this photo
of a commission I am working on
that
I showed a while back
.



My friend Patti loved how it looked at this stage.
So much so that she wanted a copy of it to frame.


So, after a bit of jiggery pokery in photoshop, we decided that this
was how it should look for framing. 




As it was coming up to her birthday, I kind of ignored it after this and hoped she'd forget about it.




Because I wanted to get it matted and framed as a present of her.



You can't really tell in this photo of it but it is 11'' x 14''

I think it worked really well and would never have thought to do this.
Now I just have to get one for me :-)

  1. Well done, woman! It is actually quite you :). So much possibilities, you can also add colours and depict a new season :)

    By the way, I often regard miniatures as art too :).

    Quite me...ya think :-) I do really like it but would never have thought to do it.

    I like the idea of changing colors too.

    I'll look at my minis in a completely different light now :-)

  5. Thanks Gagan.

    I have a big thing about silhouettes and black and white as well. I am pleased with how this worked with the grey matting and aged black frame.

    I have to admit I wasn't sure of the idea at first but once I did it I love it too.

    She is a lot more artistic than I am :-)

  13. When I first told you how very much I liked the raw form of the wire 'tree' I never dreamed it would become my own work of art! I will always treasure it.

    The ideas of changing colors for the seasons and making notecards from it are brilliant! :-D

  14. Wow, I love what you done with this, it looks wonderful. It would also work brilliantly as a piece of stitched blackwork. Fabalous, you think of so many clever ideas :0)
