3 Small Prints On Canvas

This shows three small prints on canvas. They are a series so rather than framing each one individually, they were framed together in a single presentation to unify them as a set. Each has its own frame mounted over a linen mat. The entire piece was then framed to complete the design. The same technique would work to unite a series of family photos.

Create A Focal Point

The space over a fireplace can be such a great focal point. Carefully choose the right piece and scale of art. Use custom framing to help it look its very best in your room. The beautiful folding screen in the corner is a great look, too. The inserts could also be art, fabric, etc.

Silky Soy Candles

Our Silky Soy with shea butter contains valuable phytonutrients, giving it remarkable healing properties. Silky Soy wonderfully rich moisturizer contains all-natural soy, shea butter, selected botanical oils and skin-safe fragrances.

Rub our moisture bar all over to nourish, moisturize and heal dry areas - especially hands, elbows and heels! Your skin may feel slightly oily at first, but the goodness soon soaks into your skin leaving it feeling soft and silky. Silky Soy is also great for massages!

Imagine a candle that will moisturize and nourish your skin! Replenish skin's moisture with Silky's warm and easily-absorbed oils. Soften and smooth cuticles, cracked hands and heels. Light the candle and enjoy. When a clear melt pool forms, extinguish the flame, and use the silky melted liquid as a luxurious lotion.

I saw this idea from another custom frame shop and thought I would share it. You could do this with us!
