Here is Paradise after it was finished:
And here it is after it was framed:
I framed it myself in a floating picture frame that I had to engineer. Basically the way the frame worked was that it had the frame, a piece of glass, another piece of glass and then a smaller wood frame that fit inside the first to help sandwich the two pieces of glass together to hold the pics in place. In order to make it work I cut the foam board so that it fit snugly inside of the smaller wooden frame. Then I switched the order so that it was: frame, glass, smaller frame with the cross stitch inside, and then other piece of glass. I stretched the fabric on the foam core board and pinned it in place but I didn't lace it because the fabric was large enough to just fold over the back and since it was a clear back I wanted it to look nice.
I hope that makes sense :)
As for this blog I'm not really sure what I want to do next. I've already started 2 other projects but I don't know if I'm going to start another one on the 1st or not. I guess we'll see how this blog is going to work next year :)
Thanks everyone for sticking with me on my journey!
