Photo on Board
Some time ago I mentioned I was sorting through 40 years of photos and wondering what I could do with all of them. I happened to find a hardwood board at the thrift store the other day. So I decided to mount a print of an original photo I took onto the hardwood board. Oh, I discovered two more boxes of photos. I wish I had a penny for every photo I took, I'd be rich. I guess I'm rich with memories though.
First I painted the wood with a a few colors of acrylic paint to pick up some of the colors in the photo. The plaque is about 8 x 11 inches, so I printed the photo smaller so it would have border around it. Then I mounted the photo on the board and put a clear coating over the top. I'll epoxy a couple of D hooks on the back with wire between them for hanging. I might try ripping the edges of another photo and mounting it on board and see how that looks. I have a few other ideas for my photos too, more about those later.
