Aside

1. What tools do i need?

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 the same print.                                                         Cutting tools          Dependant on your preference you can use a blade and cutting mat or decoupage scissors which come in different designs. I prefer working with tweezer scissors (as shown below in pic 1) unlike normal scissors you can cut with the tips of the blades which i will cover this more later in 2.Cutting(part 1). Image1

the tools you need are :    a piece of foam matting ie funky foam

various sizes of embossing tools

also helpful is a pricking tool for cutting out awkward corners.
