For the Newly Weds

This was my big project over the holiday season. I wanted to give my brother and his new wife something for Christmas that represented their recent wedding. I looked and looked for the perfect frame that was also reasonable in price. I couldn't find any. So I decided to make this for them.
The larger portion is made from a piece of plywood. The center is a regular frame purchased at a local store.
Want to know how the scrapbook paper made it on to the wood click here...
For the final touch I added their last name and ext.2010 to the design freehand with brown acrylic paint.
I think they liked it. I have really enjoyed making this one and the two for our room, that I am thinking of trying to sell a few on Etsy.
And, yes I do know the picture doesn't fit the frame. But my printer is completely on the fritz (is that the right way to spell that word?). So I left it this way and they can pick which picture they like then.
