Challenge #1

Challenge #1 for January is to find/do something new.
I found this craft knife cutting blog which has inspired me.

She creates wonderful layouts by creating shapes and spaces.
I had 6 photos of squirrels and thought they might work using this technique.
I used this layout as my model.

I chose a dark green bazzil cardstock to resemble the grass.
After carefully placing 6 circles where I wanted them, I cut them out using a craft knife and sanded around the inside edge to smooth it.
My squirrel photos were traced through the circles then cut with a 1cm border to adhere to the back.
I decided to keep my photo of the park in Montreal, whole.

Here it is in partly done stage

Next, I added my title and embellishments.

I've used new 7 gypsies typewriter buttons.
