Adding Pop to Wall Art

Amanda Bar

I was bored the other day when I decided to come up with a little art project for myself.  I have several various pictures hanging up around my house, and inside of my bedroom there is one in particular that has been bothering me -  it's a one-of-a-kind art print given to me by a friend, and I just didn't think that the plain black picture frame I had purchased for it matched up to the picture.

I headed over to Michael's, purchased a Sharpie oil-based paint marker, traced out some swirly designs with a pencil along the frame until I was satisfied, and then I went to work drawing over my pencil marks with the Sharpie.  Voila (click for full image):

Picture frame

It adds some pop to the picture, and it only cost me $3.49 (the price of the marker).  My design is rudimentary at best, I know, but if you're more skilled than I am you can come up with a bunch of neat things with which to decorate your picture frames on the cheap.
