A miniature photograph frame….

A recent story line in my Instagram post about the folk who live in the dolls house involved a school photograph.

I used a school photograph taken of the school I am actually using (it is now closed) and printed this photograph quite large so that my little pupil could add herself in to the picture.

Once done, I shrunk the picture down and printed it out so it could appear in the dolls house.

I needed a frame and decided I could make a simple one with card, a little acetate, some gel pen and a silver marker.

Here’s what I did…

dfgdg  it’s a bit blurry – it’s pretty small!
Here’s the version used in the storyline, IMG_7504.JPG                  if you look carefully the girls all have fresh flowers pinned on them, hence the rather clumsy attempt here…

So, once I had my mini picture I cut out some card and acetate. Coloured the card with silver marker


I ensured that I coloured the edges silver – a real silver frame wouldn’t have white edges ….

and then cut a frame from some more card and coloured that silver too. I stuck a little card stand on the back so they can place it on a shelf or the sideboard.
I stuck everything together and then added a little embellishment with a silver gel pen. Looks a bit blobby at this size but hopefully you get the idea.

And that’s it, all done.

Thanks for reading,
back soon, love Rosie
