DIY Art: Clouds

i saw this post over at amber interiors a while ago and couldn't get it out of my mind. i have been literally thinking about cloud pictures for months. amber's photos:

can i just tell you how hard it is to get photos of the perfect fluffy clouds? i must have taken at least 50 pictures to get two that i thought were frame-worthy. that probably says something about my picture-taking abilities. but one day i looked out the window at work and saw the prettiest clouds. i ran outside and started clicking - you never know!

so here are mine! i bought 20x20 ribba frames at ikea and blew up my photos at i ended up having to order them slightly larger and trim them down to fit the square frames. apologies for forgetting to take ANY pictures of the actual process!

the ikea glass is extremely reflective so it was hard getting clear pictures of the photos. also featured is lily the dog's bed and blankie. :)  oh one tip on cutting the photos - i went out and bought a new exacto knife, a cutter that claimed to cut plastic and a mat to cut on. in the end none of these fancy things worked as well as an old fashioned pair of scissors! so don't waste your money, plus the edges are hidden by the frame anyway!
