Gift #267: Artful Spring Frames

I finished the frames for the Red Lead Spring Frame swap, and you all get to see the pictures first!  They make me very happy and I hope the recipients will enjoy them too.  I’m very much inspired by natural history illustrations and I tried to capture some of that feeling with my frames.  I wanted them to look like pages from someone’s cherished nature journal years ago.  I imagine a young woman carefully drawing the beauty she sees in nature, lovingly collecting twigs, leaves, pressed flowers, and other gifts of nature to decorate her notebook.  She gently places them in an attic trunk where she keeps all her dreams, and waits for the day when she can share them with her own children.
