I remember my friend saying a long time ago how much she like Elizabeth Mitchell's You Are My Little Bird CD, and how she would base her daughter's room decor on the album cover. So I decided to make it her "Welcome" gift. Here's how I did it, if you ever want to make something similar.
I gathered up some 5" by 7" frames and chose the scrapbook paper I was going to use.
|The image cuts off, so I hand drew the rest of the child.|
I made sure I knew where I was placing my figures before I did anything permanent.
|I traced the 5" by 7" block for each figure to be sure they would fit.|
I made sure that I only traced large color blocks, to save myself trouble cutting out pieces later.
|Here's a while figure cut out, so you can kind of see how the pieces fit.|
Step one: Set up a clean space outside. Put down newspaper or cardboard or some kind of protective barrier, because if the spray gets on anything it is a pain to de-stick it.
Step two: Lay out your first piece upside down. I did my background first, as you will want to if you choose to have one. If you don't have a background, then you can start with any piece.
|These are the legs to one of the little girl figures.|
Keep doing that until all your pieces are stuck down. Be careful about touching and overlapping pieces; you'll want to plan those ahead of time to avoid unsightly gaps between pieces. Wait for them to dry...
Now all you have to do is put them in the frames!
