Picture Perfect

Remember my second-hand frame from last week?
Well I was completely inspired to get on with making a collage to go inside it. I had a few ideas in mind, but literally just put it together as I went a long...



I used a Cath Kidston tissue (ironed out) to make up part of the background, then added a stunning illustration of The Owl and the Pussycat, a piece of red gingham ribbon and a couple of other snippets, including a hand stamped tag.



The two butterfly postage stamps were last minute additions, that happened to be on a letter that came through the post this week.



So all in all a cheap little project, that I can't wait to get hung on the wall.
