TURN IT INTO ART
Object framing has to be one of my favourite things. Capturing sweet memories tell your story in the form of wall art and the best part – these artful pieces can be just about anything!
There are so many unexpected items that come through our shoppes and get turned into the most amazing pieces of art. Really any memory can be commemorated. You just have to think outside of the box, beyond photos and paintings.
As you go through your days, collect items that speak to you and will help you remember the moment you’re experiencing. Save tickets from a movie, napkins or menus from a date. Whatever brings a smile to your face! We go to a special beach each summer so shells from these sandy walks made it to our walls!
Consider childhood mementos. Is there something that you cherish from your early years that help you remember those carefree days? Our client had a sentimental tennis racket from her youth that now sits safely under glass.
You might want to help your child remember when they were little. And let’s face it, as parents we want to hold onto these times too! With so many ‘firsts’ there are countless opportunities to create meaningful art. Whether it be first shoes, a lock of hair from a first haircut, ballet slippers from a first recital, capturing these memories will be the most rewarding kind of art for both you and your child.
These pregnancy casts are unexpected art that hold such beauty and sentiment.
Family heirlooms often get tossed in a box despite the immense history these items have. I love the idea of paying tribute to your heritage and protecting the past for generations to come.
These badger pelt gloves tell the story of our client’s grandfather and his family history.
This +70 year old christening dress is filled with memories.
If you have a talent or passion then surround yourself with items that inspire and invigorate you. An author or avid reader might want to frame a favourite book.
A musician might have a guitar that can be turned into some rocking art!
Adding a photo or plaque can also help tell your story. This baton not only represents our client who is a maestro, but with the inclusion of a plaque, highlights a special performance.
Adding a photo to this montage completes the memory.
Object framing captures moments, preserves time and traditions. It keeps what we love in sight and at a quick glance can help us remember all that we hold dear.
