Fall Art {Free!}

I've been working on getting all my Fall decor up, not finished yet, but I wanted to share a little project with you. 

This picture was taken 2 years ago at a different house, but these black frames have looked like this for years.  I took those pictures back in 2002 I think and they had been framed like that ever since.  They were ready for an update.

Now they look like this.

These are pages from the October 1st issue of "Woman's Day" magazine.  They really caught my eye, I loved the look of them.  Then I thought of my black frames that needed an update......

I ripped the edges and darkened them with scrapbooking ink, and then added a little strip of colored paper on the edges of each to mat them.

I'm loving the look and the fact that they were free! 

{The large picture in the center has special meaning to me for several reasons.  #1) It belonged to my now deceased grandparents.  #2) The truck has the name of the town they lived in on it, #3) It has pumpkins!!  I put it up every Fall, and #4) I LOVE LOVE LOVE those old style of trucks.  I want one some day!}

  1. Hey, that just came in the mail. Just might steal this one...

  2. I love this! I have done similar with "Victoria" magazines. They always had these gorgeous pictures that looked more like art. You would have never known it came from a magazine! Great job!

  3. That was a great idea Stephanie! I've seen lots of magazine things to small for my frames, why didn't I ever think about that? I love the quotes they do in the Women's day magazine. I love your fall display! Thanks so much for your sweet comments about my blog. I'm so glad you can by to visit. Did you enter my latest giveaway? If not you can enter it here:
