Dads 80th birthdayn -- D

Happy weekend everyone

I do hope you are all well.  Only a couple of weeks until Eclectic Ellapu and Altered Eclectics start up again after a long well deserved break.  I do hope you will drop by and join in with the challenges.

Anyhow I have been working on these bits and pieces for my Dad's 80th Birthday.  I used a 16''x20'' canvas and an old frame which I altered for a family collage and 8'' letters instead of a card.  The letters I bought new from Hobbycraft.  I used modelling paste on the letters acrylics and gold, copper, silver, platinum buff over the top.  For the back of the letters I printed off pics of all the things he loves onto photo paper. Doris Day, his wife and siblings that are no longer with us, horse racing, growing vegetables and reading.  He can then display them either way.

I have to say this project took me a long time, alot of photo paper and printer ink but I am pleased with the end result.

Anyway here is overload of pics lol.



Sorry for the overload of piccies but it is what it is lol

I do hope you enjoyed your visit and please call again.
