@allyfally:   Nooo…no experience painting!  I did a trial run on some test glasses to get an idea of what design I liked, in what colors, and how much pressure to put on the paint pens…. and then set up my stuff, got out the “real” glasses, took a deep breath and went to town!  They turned out pretty good, and I saved a bundle!  These are for the getting-ready period of the wedding day when all the girls are over for the beautification.

I did a ton of DIY but not very many that correspond with a specific photo inspiration.  Here’s one though lol…I know most people aren’t gonna be fans!

Ooh, I love this thread! I think probably the only DIY item I’ve made for my wedding so far that is based on a single inspiration image (versus a compilation of elements from dozens of other things) is my bridal bouquet.

Here’s my inspiration:

And here is my version with a combination of paper and silk flowers in our wedding colors (blue, silver, and what was supposed to be red only my dye/coloring ended up really pink instead…oh well, I liked the color and have decided to be more liberal with our colors to make up for it):

@icetea:  I’m not usually a big fan of things like that, but I really like what you made. It’s so beautiful!

@Frizzette080211:  Thank you!  Basically during our engagement shoot, we asked our photographer to take two pics – the foreground and the background pic.  I designed the background into a 5×7 folded greeting card (there is stuff on the other side that you can’t see in the pic I posted) and ordered the foreground pic as a 4×6 card.  Cut out the figures in the card, glue onto the greeting card!
