I have been holding this sky love photo since I originally snapped the image in Florida last month! Kicking off the month by celebrating my parent’s wedding anniversary by…what else, creating something for them!
My project begins with a scan of this photo. Obviously they have seen the photo. However after years of sitting in a photo album it will move to a shelf or wall. Hope they love it!
I love the retro feel of this particular photo: love the assist with the train, the church arches, the joy and those shoes. To me this photo symbolizes a bit of relief (as if they are happy to be off to the celebration leaving the formality of the ceremony behind). Of course, all speculation because I have yet to officially ask them.
To start my project I printed this photo on my inkjet printer on waterslide decal paper. (I used Lazertran paper.) After trimming the image, I inserted the image into water and watched the edges curl. This is my first attempt in attaching a waterslide decal to a canvas!
