I know it's been a long time since I've posted on this blog, but I have barely had any time this year for anything! However, now that it's summer break and I'm finally getting my energy (and sanity!) back, I finally have a bit of time to do things I enjoy doing.
And, the first thing I've created this summer is actually a gift for a family member. The only thing I wish is that I had been able to find a similar frame that was slightly bigger because I feel so bad that the image is so small!
If you want to create something similar, here's what you need:
-Pencil & eraser (for sketching)
-Possibly a map....
Here's what you need to do:
1. Sketch out your frame. Because the person I was making this was moving away, I added locations into the mix. I also added a quote that really fit.
2. Sand any uneven corners down.
3. Carefully burn your sketches & quotes. I had to stop a few times because I find that my wrist often hurts after a certain period of time.
4. Colour in anything you wish to colour
5. Pop the picture in!

|It's getting there...|
|Et voila! The final product|
It's so easy to personalize. You could do something similar for a birthday, best friend, wedding, retirement, anything really!
And don't worry friends, I've already got the next creation done for my next Blog post!
