Creative photo framing ideas: here are some simple, fun suggestions on how to creatively frame your precious photographic memories!
Here are some creative ideas for photo framing. Who says that you have to actually use a frame? There are all sorts of interesting ways to present your favorite photos to the world (or at least your friends and family!). The next time you pass a junk store, whip into the parking lot with one goal in mind - FRAMES! Things you might find:
1. Old multi-paned windows. Great for several images. Rustic look.
2. Old boxes. Nestle your photo in the bottom of the box. Nail the bottom to the wall with picture hangers. Voila!
3. Old clear bottles. Make sure they are clean and dry, roll up the picture and drop it in! Make sure the bottle is large enough for the photo to unfurl. 4. Shadow boxes. Same idea as #2.
5. Old plates. Adhere the photo to the plate. Hang with plate hanger.
6. Old signs. Use part of the sign as the frame. Ex: Burpee Seeds - Carrots! Put your photo where the carrots should be. Hilarious.
7. Bulletin boards. Old ones are quaint and sometimes interestingly frames. Attach your photos in normal manner.
8. Old crates. Attach photos to the inside of the crate. Attach painting hangers to the back of the crate!
9. Any interesting piece of junk will accentuate a photo.
These are but a few of the creative ways you can spotlight your favorite photos. It may take a few tries before you find the perfect vessel for your pictures, but a little junk store rummaging never hurt anybody! Keep trying! You may actually get some ideas from other items in the store. Sometimes there are very unusual old frames on old, forgotten photographs that may be just the thing for you. The combination of old and new is always a winner in design circles.
Make sure that any glue you use to adhere your photos to these items is "photo-safe." Any craft store or photo shop will be happy to offer suggestions on the products that won't harm your precious images. Also, make sure that the surface to which you are adhering your picture is nice and clean and dry. This is very important as well, for you don't want to accidentally dirty or warp your pictures.
With a little determination and creative thought, you will soon have the most interesting photo gallery in the neighborhood. Good luck!
Yoga provides numerous benefits to the body and mind. It is a peaceful, energizing practice that we all should partake in.
Yoga has been around for many centuries. It originates from India and means ?union'; A union of the body, mind and breath. There are about forty different types of yoga and each is a positive way to reduce these negative factors in our lives. Even if you are practicing only the physical part of yoga you will benefit greatly. Yoga isn't just for the spiritually minded people; everyone can benefit. It seems as though many people feel that there are not great benefits from yoga because one doesn't work up a sweat and get the heart pumping. This is not true, yoga is a calming practice and it works at strengthening the central nervous system and keeping it healthy.
If you find that time is a factor for not pursuing yoga, and it is difficult for you to join a class, there are many yoga tapes available. Most of them require twenty to thirty minutes of your time a day. You could practice in the morning or before bedtime. This is a minimal amount of time to give to your body to ensure proper health and a calm state of mind. Yoga is a positive benefit for people who suffer from anxiety. It can teach you to relax and enhance inner peace.
Hatha yoga is a popular type; it focuses on breathing control. Mantra yoga focuses on chanting and can be a very spiritual practice. Power yoga is great for building stamina and strength. At any rate they all seem to provide similar benefits for your mind and body. The varieties of poses flow one into another, always breathing through the nose. Lunges, standing poses and floor stretches will make you feel as though you have found muscles you didn't know existed. After the first few times you practice yoga you will definitely feel it in your muscles the next day.
Yoga is known for decreasing health problems or fixing existing problems. It is known to help heart conditions, anxiety, carpal tunnel syndrome and various chronic conditions. It is definitely a holistic approach to healing. Many people swear by it. It is a wonderful way to start the day, especially if the weather is warm and sunny. You can practice outside in the early morning in the backyard with nothing but the birds singing around you. If you practice in the evening, take a hot bath following your yoga session. Drop some Epsom salts in the water to soothe your muscles.
When practicing some of the stretches you will need a towel or a belt. A floor mat is a good asset if you are practicing on an area that isn't carpeted. You will be impressed with the results of yoga. It tones the muscles, improves flexibility and it energizes you.
It is best to practice yoga in bare feet to minimize slipping out of poses and lunges. Just wear comfortable clothing. Light some aromatic candles, dim the lights and push play on the VCR and you are ready for a peaceful workout.
