I've been really inspired by this site: http://www.zymoglyphic.org/galleries.html

So I made a pocket museum with a little Fimo figurine of Ares, the Greek god of war (although maybe the helmet is roman so it would make him Mars?  or maybe I just made the helmet up?)  I used a pamphlet from a museum for the mini-painting behind him.  I'm thinking of putting a frame on it, but I can't decide.  I tried beads but they kind of overwhelm the "painting."

Anyway, it makes me smile, maybe you will too.  Here's some pics!



*the blue paint on him was accidental, but if you've ever seen Julie Taymore's movie "Titus" with Anthony Hopkins (based on Shakespeare's play "Titus Andronicus) you'll know why I like him even better with the blue!

And to show the scale, even though I took the pic with flash so there's a huge glare:

Ooo, I love that Zymoglyphic site! Smiley
Anyway, as a frame you could also take a tiny paintbrush and paint a golden frame around the picture. That way it won't be as bulky as beads.
