Are you a person who still enjoys a board game? Of course you are! Well here is a really innovative idea from Lou Hamer using old Scrabble board games to make up names of your family or friends. It is a great idea for perhaps a friend or family who loves Scrabble. You could spell out your children's names (as featured below) or maybe a friend who you might have challenged to a game in the past.
The letters are glued into place on the Scrabble board.
Then the board is over mounted with in this case an off white mount board.
Once the frame is chosen the glass needs to be elevated away from the letters. This is called a box frame technique and is a technique mentioned many times on this blog and utilised many times at the Petersfield Framing Studios.
The box frame is a great way to create a 3-D effect and also protects the Scrabble board for years to come. This particular version is on display along the corridor on the way to my workshop. Lou Hamer will make these to order for you so why not visit her website for more details on Lou's Home Sewn products.
A wonderfully innovative idea from Wendy Richards and Linda Westall, this is all about fun with art. The idea is to have a drink and have a go at painting. Definitely a time to de-stress! No painting experience is necessary as you will be helped to produce your artwork in a lovely setting. Visit their website for more info and availability. Both Wendy and Linda are very accomplished artists themselves and their work can be viewed at their websites. Wendy is one of my favourite artists with some beautiful coastal work. Linda's passion is all things equestrian and creates some stunning images.
