I dragged my poor husband down the M6 (not literally) to Ikea at 8pm last night to try and find some kind of frame for my Huglies ~ as the Stafford 'Open' at the Shire Hall ~ call for entries ~ happens this Friday. Although this is not a craft based show, I asked advice from one of the staff and she said they could be entered under 'mixed media'. Anyway I thought it was worth a try, as the exhib is for two months (good showcase, me thinks). Of course, Ikea only had one type of box frame which was not deep enough, so we had to have a search for the best next thing and ended up buying three fabric~cy storage boxes, as per photos.
I thought the Huglies looked quite good dangling from the edge but I don't think they are high enough in the box and does the box look cheap? I bought them thinking they could be mirror plated to the wall quite easily (if they were accepted of course)! Your thoughts and comments would be most welcome, as I am all at sea!
