Day 16 : I've been framed

Paw-made Christmas Gift

This gift is ideal for that one neighbour who dares to complain you bark TOO much

Lets Begin

You will need :

One picture frame (I used 6x4)
Watercolour or other heavy weight paper
Black acrylic/poster paint or black ink pad (non toxic - suitable for children)
Scrap paper (and cardboard if using paint)
Great handwriting OR transfer lettering

How to make it!

Ink Pad version

Press paw into ink and plop it down onto the thick paper.
Release cleanly upwards else your print will smudge.

Paint version

Grab a spare A4 sheet of paper and spread the paint thinly across the surface (spread with a piece of scrap cardboard) and now press your paw into the paint and plop it onto the thick card as above.

All versions

Clean your paw before you do anything else!!!

Now cut out your artwork using the size of your glass as a guide
Either draw around it and cut it out or if you like dicing with death - cut around the glass!
Get an adult hooman to help you - ensure the paw-print is aligned in the centre of your print and leaving enough room to write your name.

Draw a light guide line in pencil where you want your name

Now either write your name with a black marker 
as I did, cut out the transfer letters and arrange them to your liking and using as per instructions.

Now rub out the guide line and frame your print.

Paws to admire your artwork ...

Happy Christmas!!!
