Wow, we've had such great response to Mike's personalized projects, that I asked him to submit MORE--and they are wonderful, too. He has a great new "gift" idea that you can adapt to fit the profile of someone on your holiday or birthday list. I love it! Very innovative--here's what he says about the projects.
"These two are designs are made on acrylic sheets placed into identical picture frames. I then hinge the two frames together, and attach a clasp. When its all put together, it opens and closes as a box. Here's an example of the whole set up."
"In the one below, I placed a printout of the history of the family name. Also, I make a stand which fits inside, that is used to display the piece opened up. I've made 3 of these--the other two held a birthday card in one and a hand written letter in the other. Again, I used the mosaic look--I like the antique look it gives the piece. However, another benefit is that it breaks up a large area giving your hand a rest while coloring the area."
Well, just about the time I think I've seen it all--one of you--comes up with a totally NEW idea! Thanks, again Mike, for sharing your creative ideas.
