An old fashioned frame

This is my attempt at making an old fashioned frame for my grandparents' wedding photo. I'm not quite sure what a frame would have looked like in 1910 but I image it would not be in bright colours so I've gone for the drab look. I haven't touched the photo at all, it's just how it scanned.

It's beautiful! Most frames from that time period were gray cardboard with black frilly scroll work - I have about 100 of them from family. I prefer the lovely colors of yours.

Thank you Linda and Nancy.

Nancy, I really didn't have a clue what the frames of the period would be like. I would be interested in seeing a picture of the type of frame you describe. Perhaps you could e-mail me one of post a pic here. It might be fun to recreate a similar frame with another old picture.........might have to add a BIT of colour though.

Hi Robyn - that is gorgeous!! The picture is in perfect condition also - did you do any restoring on it? Your work is a real joy to see - I always enjoy it very much.

I'll be happy to. I'll dig one out tomorrow and scan it. They are quite artistic - just drab.

Edit:

Also meant to ask - the black and white of William - did you do any other special effects besides just converting to black/white? It looks like it might have some smudge done to it.
It is quite beautiful. I would like to do one of Auggie to put with the one Terry did.

Thank you all for such great comments.

Mary, I didn't touch the picture at all, just scanned it as is. They were my paternal grandparents and I also have the wedding picture (in very good condition) of my maternal grandparents. Weren't the wedding gowns of that era absolutely exquisite!

Nancy,
Re William's photo. No smudging at all......but I did a LOT of layers with varying degrees of opacity and numerous blend modes to arrive at the final outcome. It looks so simple but it actually took quite a long time for me to arrive at something I was satisfied with. I think it is beautiful, but then if it's got William in it, it is always going to be beautiful to me.....no matter what.
