Hello Everyone who drops into Jumbled Crafts today and thank you for visiting-welcome to my newest followers-hope you like what you find here.
Great entries for 'How does your garden grow' which was the last challenge at Try it on Tuesday and today is the start of a new challenge which is to 'Recycle It' If you want some inspiration do go to TIOT and see what the rest of the design team have made and I am sure it will be just what you need to find ideas to join in with us if you visit their blogs and find out more about their makes.
My post will be full of photographs so skip to the end if you don't want to know how I made my project.
It is a fairly large picture so can you guess what I used to make the picture?
I used a free supermarket magazine
Select some bright pages
Cut length ways on the folds
fold each piece to leave a strip
This is a side view of the finished picture just to show you that the paper strips don't all need to be the same width as it is nice to have different heights when they are assembled
wind the strips around cocktail sticks to make 'quills' stick the end so it doesn't uncurl
make some larger circles with other round objects to put the smaller ones inside squash them into different shapes
this was from an old photograph
piece of a cardboard box
draw the size of the cut-out of the frame and cover it with matching paper
add foam tape to the back of the frame so you have some depth to add your 'picture'
Then arrange your 'quills' into the gap. You can frame it anyway you like. I used an old frame and some patterned paper to finished off my picture.
Can't wait to see what everyone makes
