I have always dreamed of having an altar filled with the photographs of those that have passed on through the veil, but I have never been able to implement these plans due to space and not being able to get my hands on a really large beautiful multiple-picture photo frame for a decent price.
Since I have limited space and since I got the creative bug the other night, I decided to begin creating something out of the things that I have on hand…
I have these tiny photo albums which I’ve had for a long time that have never been used as the frames are just too small for an average sized photo. I decided to cut it up and use the small frames to create a wall hanging picture frame instead.
I then raided my rather humble photo albums for some photographs that I could use for this project. Unfortunately many of the photo’s that I would like to use for my frames are on the computer and I do not have ink in my printer to print them, nor enough frames for all the photos, but in that case I chose to write the names of the deceased on paper and frame them instead.
I was working on this while listening to the Rolling Stones (something my dad would have appreciated) and drinking some tea. I remember very warm, fond memories, and hummed along to the music, sticking and decorating with pieces that I could scrounge up from my nearly depleted scrapbooking box.
I decided to bind the frames to a long piece of white ribbon, so that it could hang nicely on the left side of my Altar of dead.
This was a very simple project requiring very little in the way of tools i.e glue, ribbon, frames, scissors, scrap booking materials and photos.
