Here's my words challenge. oops you can see the camera in the glass.LOL

I found a pack of ikea picture frames in a charity shop it had 2 this size 2 small squares and a larger rectangle in it and wait for it guess how much i paid ........ 60p what a bargain.

so i painted one white when it was dry i stamped a script stamp on to it in black, then i cut a piece of white card for the inside and stamped the script stamp on that. next i found a photo of my son on with a side profile scaled it down printed it cut his face out and used it as a template to draw round it on to black card cut that out, and stuck it to the insert piece . Its something a little bit different but its growing on me.

Arty Girlz challenge #13 Hand cutting

Over on The Arty Girlz challenge Blog the challenge we have set this week is hand cutting, check out the blog to find out more and join in all are welcome what ever craft your into

Here's mine.
I folded a piece of white paper in half drew round the template found it in an old file must have photo copied it from a book any way i cut the design out with scissors and a craft knife then repeated the process so i had 2 then i laid them flat one on top of the other and pierced holes down the center on the fold line and stitched the 2 piece together making a loop at the top to hang it from the tree, i left it white as i was going to have a white theme on the tree this year but that's kinda gone out the window now .
