I like to make artwork out of things that aren’t really “art” I suppose it’s a bit like scrap booking, I call it Keepsaking.
So along with the foreign money I arranged in frames I framed another little keepsake. I was cleaning out my purse not too long ago and I found a ticket stub from Cinderella. I wasn’t overly wowed by the recent live action iteration of Cinderella (fingers crossed for Beauty and The Beast) however it has a more sentimental value. That was the night my boyfriend (ok fine fiancé) proposed to me.
When I found the frame for my calendar (you can see that here) I also found this rather epic frame on clearance. So I decided to put my tiny ticket stub in it.
First I had to make a mat for it though
I just cut an old mat up as a template. Then I used some washi tape to jazz it up
And finished off the edge with ribbon
Then, Hey Presto! I got myself a little keepsake for my desk at work.
Not to mention absolutely no excuse to forget that particular anniversary.
