I bought a couple of shadow frames at IKEA, so I used one right away for a photo of my niece (who else???)
The photo is from Karpenissi, where she rode a horse with her mother, for the first time and he was sooo thrilled!
What I did in order to acieve a 3d look is that I printed the photo twice and then I cut out from the second photo my niece and the head horse and adhered them on the whole photo with 3d foam dots. You can't see it here, but it really made the difference.
Then I adhered the photo on a white cardstock and colored on it so as to "expand" the view and then I added the decorative pieces, they were adhered on 3d dot stacks I made and I also varied the depth.
Here I colored the front piece of a horse drawing and adhered it on the project right next to the back of a real one that was in the photo, so as the horse will look whole. I aslo added some glitter on the mane.
I made the "branches" by stamping with the same stamp on various cardstock and paper pieces, and then accented the flowers with Stickles and...ready!
