Results of my crafty weekend

Sorry been rather busy making pictures,thought about time i told you all about my crafty weekend last week.

My husband and i went to find the craft market,had a good look round at all the stalls there was a wide range of crafts there.Including card making,jewellry,knitting,and paintings etc but nothing like my work.

Managed to have a good chat with some wonderfully creative people got lots of ideas and good advice which is great!!

Then to top it all managed to book a stall for the next market on the 12th october. yes!! next job is to make sure i have enough pictures made.

The following day i went to a papercraft show which wasn’t as exciting as last year as  there were less stalls. Although i did manage to learn decopatch which i am now using to vamp up my tatty sad looking sewing box in my spare time(not that i have very much these days) hope to be back on track this week so watch this space!!


new look

2. Cutting (part 1)

We start off with 5 identical prints,your first one being your base print to build on.


the second print we start cutting into as shown below i have outlined to show where to cut.


which would look like this:                                                                                                             (always save the bits left over as you may need them later)


now onto sheet 3


following the lines you can see the perspective


if you have one this is where a pricking tool is helpful carefully follow the lines of the tree trunks pricking around the inside area needing to be cut away.



then using scissors (or blade) cut around the area as below



           you should end up with the two pieces above.


using the piece left over cut out the next piece.


finally cut out the top canopy of the tree .

part 2 coming soon!!


There are several types of tools that are used when making a picture,to make it easier i will split them up into categories     The obvious one of course is your picture/print.You will need minimum of 5 exact copies of … Continue reading
