Hello there!

My photo
My name is Susan, and Designs by Prater is what you could call my creative outlet that pulls together my photography, art and graphic design endeavors! The most important thing you should know about me is that my life revolves around my God and my Savior Jesus Christ, my family (especially my husband Todd, son JD, and puppy Lexie), family and friends. Other than that, I am pretty much obsessed with photography, Coca-Cola, and the color green (and all shades of green for that matter, especially teal). I love sports but cannot play them worth a lick. I would not trade my time as a college student at Mississippi State for anything in the world. The friendships and memories made there will stick with me forever...Hail State and Go Dogs! And I am very picky about my chocolate chip cookies, grilled cheeses, and shaved ice (gotta be SnoBiz watermelon flavor).

displaying prints on easels {tuesday's tip}

do you have a lot of frames already holding pictures you don't want to replace in your house and want a new way to display a recent picture? or are you tired of how much of your image is cropped out when you print it in 8x10 size because it is too hard to find an 8x12 frame that you love? well, i have a solution for you that i use all the time in my house!

print your images in whatever size you want, give it a little backing with matboard or foam core, and then display it on an easel!

i love to order these landscape-oriented prints on metallic paper mounted on matboard
to display on these cute little easels i found at hobby lobby

a close-up - the easels come in black and dark natural wood finish
then i find these bigger easels all the time at places like big lots, pier1, tj maxx, etc.
and many thanks to previous portrait client Amy for sending in this shot of how she displayed her large print in her home on an easel, similar to the ones you can find at hobby lobby!


have you already displayed photos in your home on easels? if so, post a picture on my FB page and show off your mad skills! until next time, take care and...
