Photographs have always evoked strong emotions - special memories caught on camera have their own special magic. But photos must be displayed for us to share their magic with others. Now there are many more display possibilities than placing them in an album or simply framing them.
This book shares more than 75 ideas for turning your photos into attractive and interesting displays. It is the result of much experimenting and trial and error. While some projects are both functional and decorative, others are delightfully quirky. They all have one thing in common: the creative use of photographs, and whatever you have at hand for embellishment. Bases used include canvas, glass, porcelain and ceramics, wood (MDF and soft wood), fabric, candles and skirting boards. In fact, there is hardly a surface that cannot be covered with a photograph in some way or another.
Various techniques are used, including several transfer methods, decoupage, photomontage and covering with resin. Use these ideas to turn your photos into valued gifts by personalising general-use items or simply create eye-catching decor for your home. Once you start, you may not want to stop! Illustrated with step by step photographs as well as magnificent photos of each finished project, the book will both teach and inspire.
So give your creativity free rein and fill your life with your special moments.
