"My daughter made this in third grade. I loved it and wanted to frame it for a LONG time ( she is 14 now) I'm sure you can relate. It is rather large like 14x7 or something like that. I knew that buying a frame for it could be expensive. So while at the local Good Will store I spotted some old pictures....ding! So I brought home my $2.95 treasure and got to work. I painted the outer frame black from my acrylic paints. Then, what to do for the background...The print on the front was on paper. So I flipped it over and sprayed it an heirloom white spray paint After it dried, I sponged it with more acrylic paints that matched the artwork.
