Robins Nest Project

This creation would make a lovely Anniversary gift for someone by using their wedding photo to produce a very personal gift. What could be more appreciated than knowing that someone had taken their time to make a very special gift for them.


I used a black and white vintage photo of a wedding couple. Colour was added to the bouquet, and the grooms boutonniere and the brides lips with a marvy marker. The bride's headpiece is highlighted with diamond sticklers. This picture was attached to a wooden frame which was cover with a piece of wallpaper. Lace with the same colour threads as the flower print on paper was added around the picture. I braided white ribbon and added this to the inside of the lace. Flowers were tipped with diamond sticklers and then attached to the corner of the photo. In the top two corners I added a little bow and then opalescent embellishments were added to each corner of the frame.
