I have been going to do this for 13 years and last night was the night. I got busy last night and started on a gift for my daughter for her Mother's Day. I started with a snapshot of my two grand daughters. I then cut the silhouette out of black card stock paper. Next came my Photoshop creation. I used around ten brushes from my files to create the background. In my flower file I found this lovely pink rose bouquet. I ran the silhouettes and the flowers through the printer. I made several copies of the flowers so that I could cut them out and make the 3D. I then added spacers between the back ground and the silhouettes to bring them out just a little. On top of that I put spacers between the flowers making a total of three layers. I do hope you can see the details, if not just right click and they will enlarge for you.
Once I get them framed I will let you have a sneak preview before I give them to Melissa to hang on her wall. I will have to keep one for myself & I think I will also mail copies of them to their MiMi in North Carolina.
I did not get any beading done because the layers of cutouts took all night long. I have been working in the yard all day long. Well, off to finish up on the framing and maybe some bead work too.
