My seventeen year old daughter recently created these pieces for a friend’s 18th birthday. They have been friends for their whole lives and to celebrate these memories she used some special photos of them throughout their lives to make a decorative memento of that friendship.
The technique was actually very simple and inexpensive. Not having access to a scanner she just took a photo of the photo and then printed it on a colour photocopier, just on copy paper. She then used PVA glue to coat the small canvasses and affix the images. The final step was to paint the image again with a couple of coats of the glue allowing drying time in between the layers.
The end results are really quite lovely and hopefully we always be an enduring shared treasure and visual memory of the friendship between the two girls.
