I made this for my moms bday in May. I took four shadowboxes from the dollartree and glued them together. I took my trusty modpodge and glued strips of dictionary pages to make the frame one piece. The background in the pictures is also dictionary pages painted with watercolor and then ripped to pieces. I painted each picture of my mom with a wash of watercolor and added some dried flower and other bits and pieces. Here name is made with scrabble pieces with the beginning of dictionary chapter letters. My mom loves to read so I felt the dictionary pages where fitting. Comments please  Grin.
