Happy Halloween

I found this great magazine on Ebay. Old magazine covers make great art! I got it matted by the art teachers at school for a dozen donuts, and then used a 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby for the frame.

Look how a little color adjusting makes the cat look. Spooky!

Old Magazine covers do make great art and so much fun, too. Love the one you found and your addition of color. I love kitties and pumpkins. Happy Halloween

well, this is just about the cutest idea ever.
I have some magazines that have been discontinued and they would look adorable, matted, framed and hung together..Thanks sooo much for the inspiration.
