I think I’m done, but I still have a month–I can add more detailing.
What do you think? I almost think there should be more gold in it, but I just don’t know where?
Is it done? Or *almost* done? Any ideas on how to finish it?
Backstory:This is an interfaith ketubah based on wording from a reform ketubah by Rabbi Larry Kushner. I altered the hebrew and wrote the English and me and my fiance/husband went over it together until it was what we wanted. So… the text stays. It took me a few days to write it out.

Oops, the picture was sideways! This one is in the sunlight, so the dark diagonal line is a shadow. The frame is a shadow box and clear all the way through, so the “framing” color will be the same as the wall it’s mounted on.

My SIL’s mother said to add more scrolls to the outer frame using gold paint–but not to add anything else. Is that the right addition?

Maybe you could add something between the banner and the top of the ketubah? I feel like that is a lot of blank space that could be put to good use (not that I think every single blank spot needs to be filled). Maybe put your names or some scrollwork?
Btw, I think it looks great! Good on you for taking this on yourself and going the DIY route 🙂

it looks great!! I also think you should add something between the top and the tan hanging thing. Too much blank space there. Mazel Tov 🙂

@southerntransplant: I think I’ll try to do a cool script name thing on the top on a draft paper and see how it looks–that could be really great! Thank you for the idea.
@daniellealys So, there a few of common themes, either:
-many small “scenes” that fill the space
-a (single) silhouette or faint image of us based on a favorite engagment picture
-something representative, like love birds
or maybe something more abstract than that, or calligraphy/scroll work, like @southerntransplant: recommended.
I guess I have some drafting to do!
And the “hanging thing” is our chuppah. 🙂
