“Follow your dreams” framed art

I love how the Paint and Create Kit by DCWV gives me a way to be ‘artistic’ without too much experience and effort. I also love how the Glue Dots® adhesive helps me to make use of an old frame while making a beautiful piece of home decor.

Here's what you do:

Measure the inside of the frame and cut the cardboard to match that measurement.

Cut the piece of the “Paint and Create kit” background paper that measures the same as the cardboard.
