Here it is – – my first post ( with the encouragement of friends and family).
And by means of introduction, here is one of my latest projects – Saint Francis in the Garden.
This is my third, and probably final, Saint Francis. Most of the cuts originated with my Cricut. Some were modified by hand, a few were cut by hand, and nearly all were colored or enhanced in some manner. The book “frame” is from the wooden crafts section at the local AC Moore. The outer cover, inside background, “pages” and the prayer were decoupaged.
The rose bush behind St Francis was created using Mother’s Day Bouquet and a branch from Picturesque. If all goes well , maybe someday there will be a tutorial posted here.
This is a gift for some dear friends who recently professed as Secular Franciscans. I found the message that is decoupaged on the front at the lay organization’s site.
Okay – I did it. I will be back eventually to put more of my work up and try to share a few lessons learned along the way.
