I had a crafty weekend and completed two shadowbox collages. I got the frame at Michael's for $3.99!
This farm collage was so fun to make. A friend of mine at work asked me to create this for her parents as an Anniversary Gift.
I asked her to describe the farm and after going onto SVG Cuts the Grandpa's Organic Farm Collection had almost everything I needed (even a windmill). Mary - you must of done your research on that one. I also used the cow from Harvest Hill Farm. Puppy is from Doggie Pals I and it captured their dog Angel perfectly.
I tried something new for this collage - Cri-Kits Pens. I won these in a recent challenge on the SCAL Forum. I love these! I did the farm name and Established with the pens.
It draws where it would normally cut so I had to play around with the fonts a bit. I converted my fonts to outline in Illustrator and made them into a single line. It was so much fun.
Cri-Kits is having a challenge on their blog and I entered this. Click for the challenge details.
