My Valentine Project 2015 is taking form. This year I am going to combine my interest for genealogy with making a cute display for the Valentine celebration. I am going to put all my ancestors in romantic vintage frames:
The first two frames in my Valentine set up are two pairs of my Great-Great Grandparents! They were married in 1867 and 1876, these are the only pictures I have of them, taken at old age.
I used a new font that appeared in my Photoshop when I installed the newest version, it is called Snell Roundhand Black. You might be able to find a similar font for free if you search for free fonts.
I am adding my images digitally, then printing the finished images on matte photo paper (Canon 170g matte photo paper). I then glue the images to thin cardboard (cereal box) with spray glue, before I cut them out. This makes for nice and stiff images, that I can hang, erect with an easel or even just lean agains something (similar to cabinet cards).
I have lined up both frames on a collage sheet for you, ready to pint and cut. If you choose this method, you might have to cut away the inner gilded borders, or go crazy trying to preserve them… hehe:
Find your high quality copy of the file in the download folder, free for your personal use and enjoyment 🙂
If you wish to have the frames as digital PNG-files (transparent background), please follow my reference links below to go to the original posts.
