You know when you go to a store and you see something and you know you can make it. Well this is how this frame started I was in a shop with our daughter, it was actually the day of her husband's stag do, she spotted a frame like this and I uttered the immortal phrase. So then I had to follow through.
I bought the frame first it came from the Range and was the colour our daughter wanted for the house. I made the background with Pixie Powders and Brushos. I used masks to create the clouds I cut them with some dies I have. I didn't want hard edges on the clouds so I removed the masks and spritzed again with water.
I cut a sheep's body and covered it with Pom Poms. I used gel glue and I laid a book on them to hold them in place. The legs were cut with palm tree die from the Crafter's Companion Nativity die set. That is where the grass came from too.
I have a few Alphabet die sets this one is by Tonic it seemed to be about the right size for the project.
Our daughter and her husband liked the frame which is good it doesn't look much like the original.
This will be my last post before Christmas. I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you for supporting my blog.
