Fill those Walls.

Are you like me and leave your walls empty because the "right" or "perfect" piece has not surfaced yet? I am getting sick of two particular walls that I keep saying I will fill.

I saw a framed agate trivet tutorial from Erica Cook that I think looks beautiful and easy to do.
 



 
*High Street Market is a wonderful resource for agate options*
 
Another option I always earmark are framed intaglios. They can get pricey pretty darn fast, so I might follow Krista's tutorial.
 
To me, the scale of these frames is what makes an impression. Not to take away from the art inside the frames, but my eye gravitates towards the balance and scale of a room.  I say, when it doubt get a large mat and frame or do a series of prints.
