Cheap, Instant Artwork

If you are like me, you love a bargain.  A couple years back when looking for artwork for Porter's room, I came across old Mary Engelbreit calendars that I had.  I flipped through and thought the prints would make great art.  So, I matted and framed them.  The frames are the Ribba series from Ikea.  You can get 8x10 frames for $4.99.

I loved how these bigger ones turned out.  I used black scrapbook paper from Roberts, mounted the print on it, then mounted that on the mat provided with the frame from Ikea.  Isn't that just the best print? 
So if you are looking for artwork for your child's room, find a calendar you like, buy frames from Ikea, and you will have great inexpensive art.
