I've been working on my art wall. Panorama photo courtesy of my phone! It's a mixture of photos, pictures, cards etc that mean something to me. Most of these were already lurking somewhere in the house, I've just collected them into one place. I'm especially loving the flower watercolour painting. It came from my uncle's house and was hanging in what was my Gran's bedroom. I originally thought I would just reuse the frame but there was a wee gallery label on the back.
In the top right corner written in pencil is the price paid that says £3 and 14 shillings, making it pre decimal times! I looked up the cost for 1960s (might even be before that). £3 and 14 shillings was the equivalent of 2 days wages for a skilled tradesman. I just couldn't upcycle it knowing that so gave it a good clean and hung it up.
It's actually quite pretty and it's a wee family 'heirloom' now!
Edited to add: I googled the artist and found some info on the painting, scroll to the bottom and read the product details CLICK HERE
In the end I made 2 pictures with Scrabble tiles and boards. They were fun to do but very fiddly and faffy!! And took aaaages between all the drying stages!
