Welcome to Whispering Woods Gallery’s series of vintage photo projects. Every day in April we are featuring a custom framed vintage photo project from our shop.
Today’s project dates back to 1910. We framed three very dear items for Mary of Holland, Pa. The Chicago Kindergarten College certificate and photograph had been previously framed and had sadly suffered damage due to improper framing materials. We scanned the photo, fixed the imperfections digitally and made a new copy for this project. We used the original certificate, covering the discoloration with the oval mat. We sewed the ring to the backing board so if needed, it would be in it’s original condition.
The frame’s pattern mimics the flourishes of the Copperplate pen and ink writing. The warm tones of the mat and frame work well with the three items. Having a three dimensional object in the frame makes the project come alive. Do you have an idea? We are happy to help! Stop by the Gallery to see similar projects.
