This Time It's Personal

Evenin All
 It's Glen here with a new project as the snow flies sideways and the wind blows fiercely! I am sharing a very personal project for me, years ago when I was a serious painter I took portrait classes and as a gift for my parents 50th anniversary I painted a double portrait of them based on an old photo I always liked from the time I was young.

 The photo I copied and put in a picture frame that dad got as a security guard for BAE systems on Long Island and decided to decorate it so it could be displayed on the wall beside my painting.

 I use the Best Glue Ever to adhere the papers to the frame after filling the clock in with foam adhesive I apply the paper after I cut it to size and let it dry. It only needs a thin film to make a bond between the paper and the plastic.

 I double up on some of the flowers along the bottom, adding a little Distrees ink to bring out the colors of the flowers and leaves. Then the last thing I do is use the Perfect Crafting Pouch to take care of the sticky edges and then let it dry. I may add more in the future but for now this is good. I hope you enjoyed my post and don't forget to check out the other great projects on the the blog. Thanks for stopping by today.
