What was your inspiration?
I like to repurpose things and had seen others who used old windows and transparencies. When I was shopping one day I saw this slightly damaged frame on the floor, discounted because some of the ugly roses on it had been scratched off. So I thought I'd try out the photo idea with it.
It's hard to get a good photo without glare from the glass, but I think you can get the idea.
What are you most proud of?
I like that I can change these out now and then. Today, I updated this with new photos from a more recent trip. It almost looks like a window on our porch.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Remember to always print on the rough side of the transparency. It's also fun to transfer pictures to fabric, but takes some practice to get it right!!
