So here's the secret to the artwork. I know what you are thinking. $4.49? No way. That's what I thought until I ordered it and saw how awesome and high quality this marbled paper is in person. It even comes rolled up in a perfect little tube so nothing gets damaged.
Where did I get this beaut? Paper Mojo is the name of the company. I think this paper is mostly made for packaging... but come on, who really wraps with this beautiful of paper? Maybe a really special present.
To get this framed I wanted to keep my costs down so I headed to "Hobbly Lobbly" (what I used to call it when I was a little girl). Anyway, I took it in, and told them I wanted it floated on top of the mat. This trick instantly makes any artwork look more expensive.
They have to put some sort of glue or tape on the back... and warning: they don't like doing this, but I said it's fine, "just do it." As they carefully wrapped up my prized artwork with white gloves on, I giggled a little inside. If she only knew it was 5 bucks.
Disclaimer: to get everything framed and 50% off, it ended up being around $170 each. Not bad, Sally.
Here's the website image of the one I got. It was the tangerine streak next to the gray that made my heart pound.
What's so cool about these is they are freeform marble, so everyone is different!
Dying to use this one, it's gorgeous!
And this one, would be to-die-for with a brass frame. Can you say Malachite?!
Hello midnight. This one is on sale for $3!

*Thank you all for your sweet comments yesterday! You know how the cobblers son has no shoes? Well, I feel like a Designer's home is never worked on, because our brains are normally fried! Thanks again for making me feel like it's not completely gone ;)
What do you think? Are you going to marble up your decor now?
