MAKING LASTING MEMORIES




Oh, you know how I've been telling you about all the old photos and ephemera of Tim's family?  Well, our grandson has been into vintage airplanes.  He saw my blog post and photo of Tim's dad with his fighter plane called Queen Jack and thought it was so cool.  So we are surprising him this Christmas with a grouping/collage of images from his great grandpa's flying days.  Here's what we've completed so far.  Lots of staining, sanding, printing, glueing and sealing.     Some grandma's knit sweaters, what can I say?  Just hope he likes it and I remember to get a good photo of the whole shebang once it's hung.

  1. I don't even know Tim's family and I LOVE these. I'm sure he will be thrilled! This is such a great idea for a treasured gift. Did you print the photos on photo paper? canvas? I need a tutorial Paula!

    1. Lisa, I thought about showing how, but I have materials and a printer that made this easier for me, but let me think how to turn it into a tutorial.
