Pick up Limes plates

For my friends Sadia and Robin from Pick up Limes, I created plate illustrations for their new recipe website on www.pickuplimes.com. These plates with fruits, vegetables, grains and vegan proteins explain the plate method, a visual tool that helps to ensure your dietary needs. You can touch the images on the website to see how every recipe measures up.

 

 

Koloa campers

12-04-2021

I am the lucky girl who has a boyfriend with a campervan. When we met he already owned a very old beautiful campervan and now he turned a normal van into a campervan himself.
This is the first campervan he rents out to go on adventures and you can check *his page* to see when it’s still available.

Frame ideas

09-12-2020

If you are ready to frame an illustrations and looking for some inspiration, maybe these ideas will help you! In my webshop I sell prints in three different sizes: the small size is A4, the medium size is 29,5 x 37,5 cm, and the large size is 60 x 80 cm. It is very easy to find a frame for the small and large size prints as these sizes are standard. For the medium size, however, this can be a bit more challenging. The standard A3 size did not feel right for the illustrations that I made, so I adjusted the size. Because of this I am sometimes asked how to frame the medium sized prints in a nice way.

 

So here we go! I will give a few examples of ways to frame them, from cheaper to more expensive options.

You could frame the illustration in a slightly larger frame size and use a passe-partout, or stick it onto off-white paper. The frame I used for the photo is this one from IKEA (30 x 40 cm). I also love to shop at second hand stores and buy frames there, which gives me the possibility to work with different background papers and frame sizes. But a standard 30 x 40 cm frame works perfect as well.

The more expensive option is to ask a framer to create a custom made fitted frame. The Dutch website ‘De lijstenfabriek’ also offers frames in many different sizes. Sometimes a custom made frame by a local framer is just as expensive, depending on the material. When I go the framer I often choose for a metal (and therefore thinner) frame with a layer of wood veneer, but also love the natural oak wood frames.

Another option is to choose a frame with a glass front and backside, which is available in different sizes. There are many different brands who make glass frames, I bought the oakwood version from this website. It’s also nice to add a little flower or sprig to the glass frame.

 

I hope this information gives you some inspiration when looking for frames and maybe you can find more framing inspiration on my Instagram page.
