Displaying Paper Works

I've been playing around with how to display the drawings I do on vintage book paper in something other than a traditional frame and I am liking how this came out. I mounted the paper on a cradled wood panel and added lace to the border. It's very basic since I left the wood natural, which I like because it doesn't take away from the book page itself. Definitely something I am going to give some thought for the series I am working on at the moment. What do you think? Leave me a comment!

Currently in the Studio

I've been doing a lot of drawing and painting on vintage book pages and now I'm trying to figure out how to frame/display them and started experimenting with a few options. I got some cradled wood panels and attached the book page with light glue and then used mod podge to seal a lace border around the edge and I think it's a good option! Since this photo I've trimmed the edges of the lace and used some more mod podge to seal the edges. 

More vintage book pages to possibly work with at some point

I've been experimenting with abstract more and more lately. Very, very beginning stages of a painting.
