This picture was something that I thought was really cool to look at. Then I started cutting on it and a year later after I put it down numerous times I finally finished it. I just could not get into cutting this picture. Now that it is done, I really like it and I’m glad that it is finished.
There are two picture frames on this one. The white crackle finished one was made by my husband, the other one came from the DAV store down town. It is made of wood, but it had some of the finish coming off and some scratches on it. After sanding for awhile, I used hammered brown paint and it gave it a textured look so I didn’t have to spend a lot of time on the frame. I have found that you can get some really nice looking frames at the Salvation Army or DAV.
The cut out itself measures 11”x17”x1/8” Baltic Birch. The matts are different sizes to fit the frames. The crackle frame was done with black for the matt and backing. The brown frame has two different kinds of green matt and black for the backing.
The pattern is from Mike Williams.
Thanks for looking.
