Alternating Picture Board

Ever wanted to display two pictures, but only had one frame? Here's your solution.

Alternating Picture Board

My outlook on life is, everything is a matter of perspective. Think about it. Depending on where you’re standing, you and the person next to you might see a situation in completely different ways. So, take my viewpoint that everything is a matter of perspective, mix in the dilemma of having two pictures and only one frame, and what have you got? Literally two completely different pictures depending on where you’re standing.

After you've finished cutting, you need to attach the pictures to the cardstock. Use the spray mount and coat the cardstock evenly, then quickly press the pictures to it. Make sure there are no air bubbles.

Conclusion

In place of using a computer and printer (for prinitng pictures) you can design your own. You can paint, draw, whatever you want. Any two pieces of art will work as long as they are the same size.
