Background: While thrifting at a local store, my friend and I stumbled upon a $1 "painting " of "The Last Supper".  It looked like a color-by-numbers picture, and come on, it was $1.  We snapped it up, and she promptly displayed it in her room.  The thing is that it was in a cheesy, plastic frame that was spray-painted gold... ewww. So in keeping with the homemade quality of the work itself, I decided to make a spectacular frame out of stuff we had in our suite:
     1. cardboard
     2. Hot glue
     3. Left over paint from art class
I like how it turned out, and think it goes well with the painting itself. It seems like I burned my fingerprints off using the hot-glue, but Jesus is worth it Smiley

Here are the pics.:
- Original "Painting" with completed frame.

- Close up of one side of the frame (One side has a linear detail and the other has a more flow-y, wavy detail.)

- Close-up of the wavy side

- here is the top of the new frame; you can get a clear look at the old frame, which seemed to be hot glued on before I came along: I guess crafty minds think alike  Smiley
So I just added my new frame behind the old one, which I like, as it gives some depth.  Anyway, I hope everyone enjoys my free frame for a $1 artwork  Grin

I go to Saint Mary's in Maryland, about 2,000 students.  It's in the middle of nowhere, so I have LOTS of time for crafting  Cheesy
