Photo - Word Frame

This is a photography project I've been working on. I wanted to make a gift for my boss who is being transferred. I've been developing an Alphabet Photography library and so I chose photos that spelled his name "FRED". I had the photos printed in black and white and mounted them behind the white mat in the 3x3" openings of the 8"x8" frame. I then made an identical mat out of vellum to lay over the mat board. I stamped several words that described him. I used my CTMH small alphabet on a long clear mount. I used Versafine Ink - Black Onyx and embossed with black detail powder. I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Alphabet Photography - These are pictures of every things that represent letters of the alphabet. It's important to keep contrast in mind to ensure the letter stands out. I don't have pictures for all the letters but I'm happy with my progress. Some letters are really hard to find. It requires that I look at my world from another point of view. Always a good exercise.


  1. This is really clever - and a new concept for me. I love the idea and this will be a very special gift for Fred, I am sure! Thanks for sharing, Sylvia.

  2. Thanks Charmaine, I beleive Fred really like it.
