Educational Charts

Back in the summer of 2009, I had accompanied my husband on a work related trip to Philadelphia. While he was busy with work, I spent the day exploring the city. I stumbled into Blick Art Store and spent hours in there. That is were I first saw the beautiful Cavallini wrapping paper. I  wondered who would want to wrap gifts with such beautiful paper? The idea then set in- I could frame those lovely papers. Fast forward 3 years and I finally did just that. However, I did not frame them. I wanted them to look like vintage educational charts. So, off to the store I went.

Using two half rounds, I sandwiched the paper in between with gue. The blue painters tape is just holding it together till the glue dries.

I used string and tied it to either ends of the picture and here it is. I am happy with the way it turned out. It’s on a wall by the dining area off the kitchen. Now my dilemma is should I paint the wood panelling.
