To follow up with this post, I have finally finished the project! Woohoo! Of course, it's not totally finished because I started making one for Essie & her cute family. So I'm waiting for the prints to arrive, before I can continue with her version. In the meantime, however, here's a look at the finished products:
I had a lot of 'white space' around the top & bottom of the photos so I decided to add some chipboard flourishes. I painted and embossed them, then attached them to the foam board. Here's a bit of a closer look:
And here's a shot of the Sheedy version:
It's kinda tricky taking pics of these projects, because it's late and there's just not enough light. But when the sun is barely up when you leave for work, and already setting when you come home, there's not much you can do about it! Anyhoo, for Essie's version I decided to mix it up a bit. Here's the prints I designed (with the assistance of Jessica Sprague and iStockPhoto) for her wall decoration:
This project has been pretty fun. I've never done anything like it before, so it has been interesting. And fortunately, I have my cute husband to help me with the technical stuff...like aligning the photos on the foam board. That was rather tricky, and I was really worried about screwing it up! Thanks to Hunter, it turned out great.
So, yay. Now on to the next project. :)
