Have you seen the way Elena Shumilova has captured the magic of her children through her ethereal photographs? Completely smitten with her dreamy style. She has a beautiful way of illustrating how pets enhance our lives. Truly inspired. Click here and prepare to be inspired.
I am attempting to transfer some of my beloved photos from my Mac to my world. I have loved this photo since I snapped it about two years ago. I have never printed it, shared it or honored it properly. Until today.
This is my daughter who proclaimed at the tender age of 2 that she wanted a dog. I responded that we would adopt a dog when she turned 9. My childhood didn’t include a dog so adding a dog to our family picture was not on my radar. I honestly thought she would forget about her request (and my promise). But on every birthday (and on several occasions in between) she reminded me of my promise.
As a gesture of love and honoring promises, we made her dream come true at 9 and adopted a dog. The first few months were a little challenging, but Missy quickly assumed her role as the heart-center of the family.
Today’s project: one table + one beloved photo + sealer
1.) Dream big.
2.) Do not talk yourself out of your idea ;). Find a table top you could re-purpose. I found this table in my studio.
3.) Print your image. I outsourced my print job sending the .jpg file to my local Office Max via an email request for a print 19 x 14.5 inches to fit the table’s dimensions.
4.) Attach the photo to a table. Once dry, add a sealer. I applied a spray polyurethane in a matte finish.
