Spread L-o-v-e #9 - Personalised photo pearls portrait

Posted by ~Summer~ on June 29, 2015

Remember I shared with you in Creativity 521 on how to make a beaded, customised portrait by using one of my favourite Swedish products (other than IKEA which tops the list) - Photo Pearls? Here's a look at some of the ones I've made along the journey.

You know, I really love the fact that every portrait is truly unique in the world and you won't be able to buy or find another ever. Personalised gifts just have a way of touching hearts, especially so when they involve pictures of the people closest to you and never fail to make you smile whenever you look at them.

For those of you who might have some problem getting the supplies, don't have time to bead even though you are keen, or are simply looking for a special gift for a loved one, do read on!

Yes! Yes! Yes! If you've guessed it, it's finally time for the next Spread L-o-v-e giveaway! I know I've been hosting plenty of giveaways, some of which I must say involve quite attractive prizes, but no matter what, it's really been quite awhile since I made anything decent to give away on the blog.

So, after racking my brains for some time, I think giving away a Personalised Photo Pearls Portrait is one of the best things I can come up with for now since I have most of the supplies lying at home. I also find it quite therapeutic to bead in the wee hours, so don't worry, I actually think I will quite enjoy making this for whoever that wins it!

Terms and conditions:

1) This giveaway is open to all readers residing in Singapore (Sorry! Too heavy to send overseas).
2) Beaded pattern will be made using 4 pegboards and a total of 3,600 coloured beads. It will be placed in an IKEA photo frame measuring 50cm by 40cm. (Same as Ariel's above)
3) Portrait will be solo and can be of a child/ adult/ elderly or someone you love. No pets, please.
4) A high-resolution image has to be sent to me. Final beaded pattern and additional decorations will be at my discretion (I will provide you with an overview beforehand).
5) Prize will be hand delivered to the winner. Well, love should go all the way, right?
