Hi all, how's things? How much crafting have you got through this week? Not as much as you'd like [No? Me neither!] or too much? [if there is such a thing as too much crafting that is!!]
While this isn't something I've made this week, there are two specific reasons I thought I'd share this particular project with you today.
- The first is that it was Shakespeare's birthday just last Friday [What? Did you forget to send him a card again?].
While it looks like I might have spent a lot of time and care cutting out a tiny head shape ... I certainly haven't! No, I just bought and altered a 'Head Trinket' from the 3DJean shop:
Once I'd completed the simple construction I decorated the outside with paint, a scrap of wrapping paper, a rub-on, some coloured crayon and Stickles glitter:
The tiny quotation is from Shakespeare's Hamlet and to frame it within the shadow-box I:
- typed it into Microsoft Word document using a size 8 font;
- printed it off;
- glued it in place;
- Glossy Accented it and finally ....
- smeared it with various colours of Stickles:
The end result is now proudly on display and as it's so tiny and so light he's simply Blue-Tacked to a shelf unit! [Not sure how respectful that is to a Prince of Denmark!]
Now, having re-visited this project, I'm wondering why I didn't buy more of them and have a line of wise heads lined up across the shelf.
Luckily, there's some in stock right now .... I'll race you to the checkout ...
