So this was my sister & her husbands first Christmas as a married couple & I wanted to get them a gift that was a family gift. Something that would go well in their home & something that could be kept around….so I came up with the name art. I’m sure you’ve seen the pics that are taken or cropped to look like letters. Well there is a whole site that has differnt shaped, colored, fonts of letters – http://www.flickr.com/photos/lwr/collections/72157594587080023/ and they are free to download.
So I chose 2 photos from their recent photos, one was from their wedding
and the other was from a recent family photo session they had done.
Then the task of choosing the letters. It was really hard choosing those letters but eventually after spending a couple hours on the first two letters i finally just picked a random page and made myself choose a letter off of that page.
I meshed them together in photoshop, did a little fancy erasing, blending & then turned the whole thing black & white. I had the photo printed at Walgreens, 8×10. Then I framed it in a nice black frame that had a nice double matting which i bought at walmart for an inexpensive price.
And this is the finished product – without the frame.
