Another pair of my Great-Great Grandparents! My Grandmother always had the picture of my Great-Great Grandfather Amund (her Grandfather), but only this summer did I come across a picture of my Great-Great Grandmother Ingeborg, and for the first time see what she looked like. Amund and Ingeborg were married in 1879. Today is the first time I have thought to put the two images together, I have to confess I became a little emotional, finally seeing them together after all this time:
I am adding my photos digitally, then printing the finished image on matte photo paper (Canon 170g matte photo paper). I then glue the image onto thin cardboard (cereal box) with spray glue, before I cut it out. After cutting I also distress and ink the edges and corners, for a vintage, worn look. This makes for a nice and stiff image, that I can hang, erect with an easel or even just lean agains something (similar to cabinet cards).
The font is Snell Roundhand Black, it came with my latest Photoshop update. You might be able to find a similar font for free if you search for free fonts.
Here is the frame ready to print for you, if you wish to add pictures manually, or as a PNG-file (transparent background) if you wish to add pictures digitally:
