Last Christmas my son and daughter-in-law gave me a lovely picture frame. It is sectioned off into 6 6x4" little frames and is quite deep. I really wanted to do something special with it, but I didn't have any ideas until recently.
I started by putting in the photos of my cats, Sammy (the one looking out of the window) is no longer, she died earlier in the year and her photo has been the only thing in the frame for ages. I quite liked the curtain idea so I started the collage with that.
I had seen this
In amongst all the buttons, lace and trims that I have been given, inherited or picked up at jumble sales I had this lovely button card (I would love to know how old it is)
One of my Scrapping friends Shirley had done a super dressing dummy collage in a household matchbox. Bless her she sent me a kit to make the final aperture
the silver thimble was my mother's and the press studs came from her too.
so finally here is the completed frame. I have found a place to hang it but need help to get the hooks in the right place so next time Neil comes over I'll ask him to do it.
