Art and illustration on a budget

If you, like myself, like to have beautiful art and illustrations on your walls, you also know that it can be very pricy. I own a few originals and lithographs myself, but sometimes it's also nice to have something more temporary you can change if you want to, without the costs being too high. Not all artists or illustrators work is to be found as posters, but if you keep an eye on some of the small niche-magazines, you may stumble upon some great work. Just a few years ago I would never dream of cutting out pages in my magazines, but that's changed.

A few days ago I was looking at magazines in my favorite magazine-derpartment, and the new danish magazine Tomorrows Journal had a nice article with danish artist/fashion designer Anne Sofie Madsen, who also makes the most beautiful illustrations in nice colors. So when I saw that the article also featured some of her work (and even without text) I decided to buy the magazine to use the pages to hang on my walls. So the tip is hereby given to you.

The steps are really simple and all you need is a ruler, a knife and a frame!
(and if your quick, you might still be able to find the magazine with the beautiful Anne Sofie Madsen illustrations)
