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
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.
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.
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 ...
