A welcome sign of spring~
For over a year I have been planning to do a collage of family photos on a wall of our bedroom. I finally finished amassing the photos and frames (some of which were fine as they were, some needed to be bought and others painted) and got them hung yesterday all by me onesie. The silhouettes are of my two girls, done years ago by a man from Russia or a former Soviet satellite, judging by his accent, at the Bob Evans Farm Festival in Rio Grande (that's RYE-oh Grand), OH. His skill was amazing! He cut the likenesses freehand with a pair of surgical scissors in about three minutes each. I updated them with new frames and I'm really pleased with how they turned out!
The frame in the middle bottom was copied from something I saw in a craft store for $50. It's just an empty frame strung with twine to which I clipped snapshots using little clothespins left over from another project. We already had the twine and I bought the frame from Goodwill for $5. It didn't even need painting. I took out the horrid Andy Warhol quotation, used hot glue to attach the twine and it was finished! It will be really easy to change photos too.
