Ok. I have a doodle. It was an art project, from my high-school art class. I had finished a previous project, with time to spare, so my awesome teacher gave me a huge piece of paper and a tiny-nibbed pen and said, ‘Go for it.’ Hence the name ‘doodle’–because I just drew whatever came to mind. Is it the best piece of art ever? No. Will it win the Turner prize? No. Do I love it? YES!
All through University, it hung over my bed, almost as a dreamcatcher. And now, that I have my own home, I have been wanting to frame it properly and hang it up. FINALLY–FINALLY–I measured the thing (American paper sizes are different to UK ones), and decided to get me a frame at IKEA.
So, I buy the frame. The next morning, I’m excited to put my doodle in this frame. I proceed to break the glass of the frame.
I then proceed to beat myself up for my innate stupidity and lack of patience.
- Just get a new frame.
- Get new glass from a framing shop/glazier.
- Buy a HUGE clip frame and cut the glass down to fit my frame.
- Burn everything in a huge bonfire
I’m looking into all these options.
However, I am leaning towards cutting glass–I know, I know–not a great choice of activity for someone with the aforementioned stupidity and impatience. BUT–it might be the cheapest option, AND I can learn a handy new skill. I’ve even had a look at this ‘How To’ video and instructions online: http://www.wikihow.com/Cut-Glass. So, in the hopefully near future–watch this space for my attempts at fixing this sham of a framing attempt!
