16th birthday memory frame

Hi!
I can’t believe the backlog of projects I’ve got to blog. You may have noticed I’ve been busy moving and redesigning my blog. I should be back to regular posting soon.
TodayI’m sharing a comissioned project for a 16th birthday gift. I was asked to make a one of a kind memory frame with blue in the colour scheme and for several reasons I decided an astronomical theme was appropriate.
I took the photos in a bit of a rush and they aren’t brilliant as it is difficult to photograph due to the glass.

I decided to use some cork in the layers.

I thought for a teenage boy it would be fun to use some wood stars with red beer bottle tops to add some colour.

I thought I could get away with a bit of bling to give a starry effect.

I cropped and resized the photos digitally and placed them to show the progression through the years.

The current photo was taken by his brother and I digitally merged it with some paper and overlaid the lyrics from my wish for you.

I made up the stars using layers of paper and a touch of bling to draw attention.

I couldn’t resist using the little kraft photo corners.

This is my first memory frame for a teenage boy so fingers crossed that he likes it and that he has a great birthday!
