Photo Frame Project

For Father's Day, I got inspired to decorate a photo of my husband's kids and surprise him with it.  This is my first attempt at anything like this, so it's not super fancy, but I'm happy with how it turned out and he loves it!  (photo taken by Rojeana at Passionate Photography:  See her facebook: HERE)

The project itself was really easy.  I bought an 8x10 glass shadow box type frame with an inner frame to fit a 5x7 photo, along with some scrapbooking embellishments and two types of glue.  I used a gel adhesive to stick the little flowers onto the rear piece of glass.  Then I used a decoupage type adhesive and brushed it onto the front of the waves and the palm leaves and then stuck them to the inside of the front piece of glass facing outward.  I used a very thin layer of the decoupage and it is almost invisible when dry.
