My grandmother unearthed a picture of herself and my grandfather kissing in the mirror. 
 
I bought a raw wood mirror on clearance for $7 several months ago.  A perfect decoupage combination.


How very meta.


This is the back of the photo where Grandma has written, "Can't stand this stuff!"  I can picture her feeling rebellious for both the contraction and the word, "stuff."



These are images printed out on an ink jet printer.  I used Aleen's Decoupage Glue, which I prefer over Modge Podge.  By itself, it didn't cause the image to run.  When I tried to mix it with water to thin it out, then I had problems.  I only spread the glue on the back but wasn't too fussy about keeping it off the front.  I think I might spray a layer of shellack over it since Windex seems to cut through the glue.  That was lucky since I didn't protect the glass at all.  Any suggestions?

It's so hilarious that even back in the day, mirror shots were being taken. And here I thought it was just a phase of the myspace age.

I'd definately shellack it or something, just to give it a more put together look and overall protect it.

They say they climb mountains because they are there.  I wonder if it would astound them to know that the very same reason is why the rest of us go around them.

My grandfather just died this week and I was trying to think of something to make for my grandmother to help her get through it (they were married for 56 years).  I'm sure she'd love something like this.  I have to see if I can find a photo of them together. Smiley
