I'm in the midst of redecorating our bedroom in greens, browns and white but our walls were looking a bit empty...  Thankfully Mother Nature is an artist herself and helped me out with some great wall hangings!



The frames were found in my collection and painted white by roughing up the old finish with some sandpaper, painting a couple layers of gesso as a base and then painting a few more layers of white acrylic paint on top.  The ferns were culled from a few houseplants and an outdoor fern, pressed for a few days in between some heavy books and displayed on white cardstock in the now white frames.

I know the idea is a bit Martha, but trust me I'm not quite that evil, I promise!

Hey, if this idea is Martha-esque, bring it on!  These are wonderful and will be gorgeous displays of nature indoors.  Very cool!  Cheesy

That's gorgeous! I love how all the frames are slightly different, too. I have some shadow boxes at home... maybe I should do something similar. Great idea!

Lovely clean light lines.  Does remind me of "Martha".  Is that a bad thing?  I love them!!  I think they are great pieces of art.
