Photo + Document

While I can’t claim this idea, I’ll still tell about it. We have a document that tells about families that we wanted to hang in our home (read it HERE) but I wanted it to be more than just a framed piece of paper. So here’s the solution – our family picture was faded out using photoediting, and then printed directly on top of the document. The effect is that our family is in the background. I framed it with a little plaque that says “Family: a journey to forever” replicating something I saw in a store this summer. Super easy and looks great – go try it!

    Mandy, I’m not crafty at all but I got a sewing Machine for Christmas. I love reading your blog and I really loved what you did with your Proclamation! I want to do this.. Do I need a special printer or did you have it done somewhere else? I have no technical talents, either, but if you told me what you did, I’m sure my husband could help me! I’ll let you know how my first projects turn out: Aprons, and Pillowcases! Wish me luck!

    Hey Alaina – it’s super easy – just a regular printer. Good luck with the sewing – you can do it – aprons and pillowcases are perfect to start with!
