Last week when I was looking through old family pictures, I found my parents’ wedding picture.  They were married at my grandparents’ house in Seattle on December 9, 1950.  I was able to find a copy of their marriage certificate online and so armed with that and the picture scanned into the computer, my project began!  I created this 8″ x 10″ canvas:
Here’s a couple of close-ups:
Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you’ll leave a comment and let me know what you think of my canvas.  The theme over at Simon Says Stamp & Show is Show a Bit of Brown, so I’ll be entering it there, as well.  I’ll also submit this to the Tuesday Treasures hop here.

  7. Vic what a wonderful treasured memories keepsake you have created here. I love the idea of creating a canvas with old photos and all the texture and embellishments you have added creates a wonderful dimensional collage. The key is a very special touch. Your parents sure look as though they had a very special ceremony and day.
    Thanks for sharing this at Tuesday Treasures, I am so pleased you gave me the opportunity to see it.
