The good wife gives?
So Monday 1st October was our first wedding anniversary. Yay. So last week I combined the gift with my project, but I’m going to say up front, whilst the actual design and materials used to create it were things I already had or borrowed, I did pay to have it mounted and framed. However this was a gift and not for my own personal gain so I haven’t broken any rules but I still wanted to share this with you . This is what I came up with for the traditional paper gift for a first anniversary.
Vintage Estelle Lingerie Catalogue
A lot of patience
Usually I post tonnes of photos to explain the method. This time it would ruin the effect, so instead I’m just going to give you a brief idea and let you marvel at the print in all its completeness.
First I cut out about 20 red felt hearts
Then I cut out 20 felt hearts within the hearts already made
Then I faffed for hours and hours trying to lay them in a heart on rainbow paper.
Then my very honest friend told me it looked like a gay pride flag, which is awesome, but not the look I wanted for my 1st wedding anniversary gift to my husband.
Then I got my hands on the centre page of an old lingerie catalogue and decided to combine the two, photograph it, frame it and present it to my husband. I told him that good wives give p*rn. He laughed and told me it was quirky. I think he liked it.
