I wrote this post over three months ago, but something happened to delay it being published… I became a mother! Elise Patricia James was born on October 5th. 😀 So here is the original post, as I quite like how I ended it.
Another nursery decoration make for today; I’ve been gathering ideas over the past few weeks for decorating baby’s room. I wanted a way of displaying the scan photos and thought this was a lovely idea, especially as I already had an IKEA frame that was perfect for it.
I used leftover wallpaper samples from my butterfly frame project and cut them to the right size to use as colourful backgrounds for the scans. I wanted each background to be different to make it colourful and interesting, and to link in with the butterflies.
I tried out different layouts with the photos and labels – both in the middle (scan in top, label beneath); label on the mount; alternating photo on the left in one and on the right in the other – but I thought this layout worked.
I did attempt to write the labels myself by looking up some simple hand lettering pins, but they didn’t work so I settled on printing the labels in a nice font on some fancy paper leftover from my wedding invitations (nice link, I thought). I now need baby to arrive so I can fill in the final frame. ❤
