|Last week this canvas arrived in the mail. I was super excited to receive it after seeing it over at Just Paint It.|
Colleen painted the original and is offering up copies with a portion of the proceeds going to help aid the victims of the awful tornado outbreak in Oklahoma. I ordered the 11X14 print knowing I had a vintage frame it would fit perfectly in.
|I have never ordered art prints before so I did not know I had to leave an allowance for a border. This posed quite the dilemma. I was not wanting to spend any more money on this project and I was determined I was going to make this frame work.|
|After pondering the solution for awhile and watching the progress out back and being bored out of my mind it dawned on me what I could do.|
|I pulled out my gold paint and decided to just paint the white border around the cows gold. I was crossing my fingers that once painted the gold would blend in with the frame.|
|Next up I had to create a backing to hold the print in the frame so out came an old box I had.|
|After a little trimming I had the backing I needed.|
|I did not want to permanently affix the canvas to the cardboard so I used some packaging tape to keep the two together.|
|Here is the outcome.|
|I am just loving my two cows, gold paint and all. They look right at home on the shelf in our half bath.|
If you love this print as much as I do you can order it in several different sizes from Colleen's Zazzle shop. You can also purchase raffle tickets on her blog for chances to win the original painting! Drawing to be held on June 30. It is such a worth wild cause!
