Newpaper Art! I love this idea but would like to add extra meaning by collecting articles for the year or decade depending on where it's going in your home. For example: in a baby's room you may want to collect articles from their birth year.
Thin frames, gold. IDEA: paint entire canvas the color of the walls. Thin vertical lines in gold perma pen. Splatter watery navy. Paint half gold, turn over and let drip/bleed forward (like this painting). Splatter white.
