A Special Birthday Collage

Miss Dessa Reed really knows how to be a good friend! She wanted a special way to display photos from the life of her buddy Janice Mayfield as a surprise for her birthday. She was going to do a poster, but wanted something a little more permanent. She thought about getting something framed, but it was too expensive.
She called me and we decided on a photo collage. This is color copies of photographs decoupaged onto a large 24x24 canvas. The background is painted and there are are all kinds of pretty printed and textured papers. The whole thing is coated in decoupage medium and then sealed.

The artwork goes around the edges, so no frame is necessary. I thought this was a very creative solution to Dessa's problem. Best of all, I talked to Janice and she loved it!
The photo at the top shows the whole thing. The two at the bottom show parts of it a little closer up!


Janice did love this! It was a big hit at the party. You did a great job on it.
