I felt like playing with graphics and making a digital photo frame for some images for our girls. First I found an image I wanted to use as a frame in The Strand Magazine from 1894:
ALTER IMAGE INTO FRAME
I used a white brush in GIMP to white out the text. Then I added alpha (transparency) to the layer. Then I use the select and cut functions to remove the images and followed up with the erase brush to extend the cut around the curved areas.
Then I added images and text as layers and cropped and stacked them so the images lined up the way I wanted. I transformed all images here into gray scale.
Here is another one I did, from different sources.
Adorable, no? I will print on photo paper add a small layer of matting and frame.
