A long time ago, or at least, it feels a long time ago, I learned to do picture framing. I had a lovely teacher, who continued to give help and advice long after the classes finished. As sometimes happens, life gets in the way, and what with one thing and another, I haven't done any picture framing for a long time. So long in fact, I was really nervous to start again.
However, a couple of weeks ago a neighbour came over with two photos she wanted me to frame. This meant I had to bite the bullet.
Bit by bit, I began to put them together. One of the favourite bits was waxing the natural wood frames. I just love the smell of bees wax.
I even cut the mounts without cutting the bevels the wrong way. That felt really good.
The frames are completed, and delivered, and now I want some more pictures to frame. I remember now, how enjoyable the whole process is. Jonathan just wants me to find more wood to wax!
