making my unknown known

in preparation for the magic city art connection festival in birmingham in april, i am trying something new to me -mounting prints to wood panel boxes.  
in past festivals i have always matted and framed my photographic work.  wanted to try something new for my digital collages...
23 done so far and i'm loving the effect.

i'm thinking about posting a simple tutorial if anyone would be interested????

  1. glad to have found your blog! yes, post a simple tutorial, yes!

    love your work.

  2. Hi Beth, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  3. I would love a tutorial. These look fabulous.

  4. What a great idea dear Beth!
    I love them so much!
    How much do they cost??
    I would like the simple tuto, for sure! :)

    1. a 12"x12" wooden panel (box like a canvas) costs $9.28 at Dick Blick art supply. you then need some wood stain, sand paper, gel medium, etc. in my opinion still much less expensive than matting/ framing or having them printed to canvas.

  5. Thank you very much hun! :) I'll try if I found these supplies somewhere in my city! It's a so very good idea!
    (And, yes, my last post is digital. A bit different! :))
